Are You Ready for The End of the World? Take the Last Toast Pledge!

CHAMBLY, QC, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Where will you be when the clock strikes the end of the world? According to the Mayan calendar, the world as we know it will come to an end on December 21st, 2012. And if that's the case, there isn't much we can do about it, so we might as well have some fun! And as Unibroue has a beer that's perfect for any special occasion that just happens to be called La Fin du Monde (which means the end of the world — literally), the Quebec brewery couldn't resist getting people across North America to raise one last toast to the end of the world on December 20th, as the clock counts down to midnight!

Far from giving credence to pessimistic apocalyptic predictions, Unibroue has decided to poke fun at them by creating www.lafindumondeday.com, a Web site where consumers are invited to take part in a unique milestone in the history of the world, by solemnly pledging to raise their glass amongst friends at the stroke of midnight on December 20th, for one last toast to the end of the world. "What a perfect opportunity to get more people to discover La Fin du Monde," says Patricia Gagnon, National Brand Manager at Unibroue. "That's why we'll be offering a first: for a limited time, La Fin du Monde will be available on tap in 178 participating establishments across North America."

La Fin du Monde has earned more medals and awards, including some of the world's highest honours, than any other Canadian beer and is Unibroue's most popular beer in the U.S. This Belgian-style Triple ale, bottle conditioned, much like the Trappist monks used to make, is now not only offered on tap but also keg conditioned, using a technique that requires great expertise. This exceptional and exceedingly rare method is the result of a savoir-faire unique in North America.

This gorgeous ale with creamy white foam and fine bubbles has a floral bouquet, with hints of honey, spices, coriander, malt and alcohol. La Fin du Monde is a well balanced beer with a pleasantly long finish, perfect for pairing with blue cheeses, mussels or venison.

Opening on a countdown clock that is sure to bring a smile to all its visitors, www.lafindumondeday.com is the Web site where all La Fin du Monde fans can get together in a pledge to raise one last toast, to buy T-shirts for the occasion, and to find local establishments where they can gather, on December 20th. La Fin du Monde fans can also gather at home with their friends to follow the countdown to the end of the world by logging onto www.lafindumondeday.com - after all, if we're all going to go, might as well have fun doing it!

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
