Coworker sez 3

May 13, 2010

Actual quote from a meeting at work. It makes sense in context, but I burst out laughing.

The parent dies while it is demonizing the children.

Update: I asked my friends in the computer industry to explain. This might help. Or not.

You mean daemon-izing? Typically its all about parents forking children and then killing them. Sometimes its nice when a child joins up with its parent. Typically I have parents abort children if they don’t join in time.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  2. I’m surprised non of my tech friends have chimed in. The context is computers. Oh geeks…
