As much as people love to freak out about machine learning, AI and data science, sometimes all we really need is a good, reliable accurate count. Computers are actually pretty damned good at 52 Pickup.
So these days in the back of my head, I'm working out what kind of database applications I might be able to get into practice that are little more than glorified bean counters, head counters, water drip counters, and inventory and asset management systems. It ought to be simple, right? I think it is. But the problem is that what we need are more open source, and therefore open-ended systems that allow low margin businesses that could really profit from a more accurate asset management, get some very scalable systems. I think of this every time I see a forklift, a pile of wood palettes or a shipping container. I'm hoping that my cousin Max will help me out on this. He knows a few things and he's a grind or die kind of guy. So we will entrepreneurialize a little bit.
