At Least 10 Times

Now I know where The Big Bang Theory got its idea for flipping the switch at least ten times... from Apple.

Part of the relevant dialogue via

Howard: Step one, rapidly flip the calibration switch from the fully up to the fully down positions for at least ten times. 
Sheldon: It actually says "at least"? 
Howard: Yeah. 
Sheldon: Why would they say "at least"? Is it 10 toggles? Is it 100 toggles? Is it 1,000 toggles? 10,000 toggles? 100,000 toggles? 
Howard: Sheldon! 
Sheldon: You see where I'm going with this.

IT Generalists

Scaling lessons from Google’s CIO — Cloud Computing News:
"In the question and answer period that followed, Fried elaborated on these concepts, telling someone that IT generalists are probably born, not made. He said at Google, the company looks for folks that want to keep improving their skills, and even has a program to help give those people the tools to be better engineers when they find those traits in employees. He said the Google culture is one where the general engineers who understand the system have a lot of input and power, which is a cultural shift that organizations that want to build at scale should try to implement."
We are all becoming generalists at our company. When there are so few of us, you have to learn a little bit of everything.
