Yes, I would recommend Strange Loop for anyone looking to witness some really bright young people who are showing a number of really interesting things.

Good enough analysis that I don't mind having "Call Me Maybe" stuck in my head. You mention Strange Loop - I hadn't heard of that show before, but it looks interesting. Would you recommend it for DBAs?
