Edito

For those that live in Taiwan (or plan to pay us a visit on this amazingly geeky island) note in your calendar the Rails Pacific conference in september. Also, I hope you hugged your favorite sysadmin on friday. Puppetlab organized a gif contest on the topic, but I really prefer the gifs from DevOps reactions. (and yeah, the sysadminday website went down on sysadmin day, pretty ironically).
