Oredev panel, Renaissance of software

Saturday, February 14, 2009

I'm looking into the visual metaphor to help people understand without the written word. I see way too many powerpoints made by engineers that make me sleepy. Presentation Zen has some good tips

I never get to read everything I want to. I suppose it is about time management but I never have the time to get around to managing it in the first place.

The HICSS conference is in Kauai next year and the submission deadline is Feb 15, so not far away. More info at:

I am co-chairing with Jeff Sutherland and it would be good to see more Agile/lean research papers and interesting topics. We are aiming for a full day track next year with a possible research panel. Let me know if you want some more information on it.

Having being in Latvia, Finland and Norway over the last two weeks I've had time to explore the cultural implications of these snow bound lands. -4 is considered warm this time of year. Hence Vodka popularity, it doesn't freeze.
Finally blogging...
My friend Eric Evans ( decided I needed to blog over beer at the Blue Anchor in Hammersmith on the weekend. He thought my stream of consciousness would be perfect for blogging. Translated this means: "your ranting conversation would be best thrown out to the masses of people with nothing better to do than read blogs and would allow me to finish my beer peacefully". Thanks Eric, I owe you one:)

This has been a long while coming. I owe it also to being a fervent hater of what I call the "stalker" applications ala twitter and facebook. After biting the bullet (surely a strange saying?!) and using them for a couple of weeks I ended up becoming addicted. I figure what the heck, in about two hundred years when we all retire we can look back nostalgically and add up our collective blog/twitter/other social media site posts and realise where our lives went. Nice.
