Weekly Exhaust Ep. 31 – There Was Actually a Manual on How to Sweep a Floor

This week Michael (little Mike) and Bryan are joined with special guest Michael Mulvey Sr (Big Mike). Big Mike recounts his experiences at AT&T in the ’70s & ’80s including his work with DARPA, the first fiber optic networks and all sorts of other nerdy stuff like propagation delays and attenuation standards. Big Mike also explains why your land line telephone (usually) never goes down when the power goes out. Michael and Bryan also discuss the films Boyhood and Dazed and Confused, as well as best practices in project management.
