Stop waiting for perfection and learn from your mistakes - All Things Distributed
a microservice is neither ever finished nor perfect... wrong decisions and mistakes can be corrected very quickly and systems can mature faster, approaching the state of antifragility. If the requirements change or better .technologies available, each microservice can be thrown out and a new one created.

From root cause to innovation - 5 Whys deep questioning to initial root causes for business/design/limitation/decisions. (site down -> server timeout -> not enough servers -> peak load -> not expected/planned peak) hence auto-scaling services

1. Embrace error as a matter of fact
"I believe we are the best place in the world to fail." That inspires a lot of our people to experiment, find errors and turn them into something innovative
2. Make due with incomplete information
3. Praise the value of learning

Blockchain: Reflections on a Webinar - by @lcecere
" Blockchain is an immutable ledger. On the webinar, Juan Ruiz from IBM used an analogy that I loved. He shared the story from his boss. She describes immutable as completing a crossword puzzle with an ink pen versus a pencil. When you use a pencil on a crossword puzzle, you can erase the entries. However, in the use of the pen, the first entries stay and are then crossed through. This is a great analogy to understand “immutable” as it pertains to blockchain."

Dentons targets in-house lawyers with new Nextlaw consultancy service
Dentons has embarked on yet another chapter in its experimentation with the legal services model as the 8,000-lawyer giant announced the launch of Nextlaw In-House Solutions yesterday (15 November).

The fifth service line to come out of the firm’s spin-off Nextlaw business, the new consultancy service will see 50 of the firm’s lawyers – all former GCs – advise existing in-house lawyers on matters including procurement for panels, relationship with the c-suite and use of technology.

Unveiling Nextlaw In-House, Dentons former Canada chair and chief executive of the new platform Chris Pinnington said clients would range from in-house teams in large organisations to start-ups setting up their legal team for the first time.

The firm was circumspect on fee arrangements but Pinnington said the consultancy wanted to move away from hourly rates: ‘We want to shift the conversation from cost to value, moving from fixed fees to success fees. In some cases it will take the form of a subscription fee.’

Other services the consultancy will offer include career mentoring and crisis management, the issues that ‘keep in-house lawyers awake at night’.
