Random Etc. - Curling is Project Management
"I'm imagining that Curling is project management: sweeping in front of the stone to both clear a path and influence the direction, but without touching it; a good curling strategy is to both knock the competition out of the way and get closer to the target, sometimes with different stones; you can drink and smoke while you play"

Custom fields? We don't need no stinking custom fields
"For all the prioritizing and severitizing (which costs a lot of time during bug input) the best method of bug sorting was human communication." Yes. Too much time has been lost in too many custom installs of JIRA.

Agile Game Development: Agile values - Responding to change over following a plan
"A popular misconception about agile is that it doesn’t allow for plans. This isn’t true. Agile focuses on the activity of planning rather than focusing on a fixed plan."

How To Launch Software (Aaron Swartz's Raw Thought)
"...for software developers, it's moronic. Your software isn't being released in theaters, it's available over the Web. You don't have to worry about the theater no longer showing after week one; you can keep pushing it for years, growing your userbase."

Lego-based time-tracking - data visualization & visual design - information aesthetics
"an alternative way to represent time schedule tracking by stacking different lengths of Lego blocks as a way to convey different sequential time periods. stacking hourly rows on top of each other builds up the whole day, while color represents the different projects at hand. a whole week of time tracking is created by setting up a series of rainbow-colored days." Awesome.

"I’ve reproduced the list [of rules from Lockheed’s Skunk Works] here with an identification of a modern software development rule or business practice that it corresponds to." Good stuff from Matt J. Can't wait to see his book.

Lost Garden: The Scary List
"Every day, we have our team meeting and on one of the walls is a white board containing the heading 'Scary List'. When someone catches whiff of a problem or rumor that could potentially sink the projects, we jot it on the list."

Extenuating Circumstances – SXSW 2008: Creative Collaboration: Building Web Apps Together
"when a technical wife and a design husband love each other very much they have a special meeting and nine months later a website is born." Great quotation; fantastic writeup of what sounded like a fantastic talk. It captures how I feel almost perfectly.

meish dot org » Creating a charter for effective Social Media activity within a large organisation
A useful, meaty charter from Meg, with some basis in her real-life efforts. I particularly like focusing effort on "making things real". Things which do not exist in their final medium do not exist yet.
