Frank Black?

"Development" is a license to never plan and never ship.

No you can't have enough resources

Now go build it.

Sounds like a major media company I keep reading about.

Effectiveness vs Efficiency...

"…corporations are not reaping huge and ever-increasing profits. They are compensating for a lack of innovation by creating new efficiencies. But every process they throw offshore is another competency removed from their own arsenal. They become management companies, capable of nothing. Then they lose their ‘competitive’ advantage, as well.”


I want that. What is it?

Dark City

Featureless, opaque, impenetrable sphere.


"For every human problem, there is a neat, simple solution; and it is always wrong."
-H.L. Mencken

User Goals

Effective planning marshals appropriate technology to accomplish user goals. (emphasis added)

Ship early, ship often?

Bug, not a feature! It's costly and destructive.


"The only way to assess the quality of another person is to spend time with them."

Death March

Well, it's interesting that the metaphor of the death march as a software development process describes a painful chain of parallels the idea of a poorly planned city and the pain that it induces for the citizens who have to wrestle with it every day.

Verdict: Sweet!

I am code retarded so the video pop up link maker is pretty awesome for me. I have some school projects that I could use this for as well.

From unmediated:
What does it do?

This is a little wizard that writes the code for you to generate pop-up windows with embedded videos. Paste in your video URL, give it a title, and paste an image URL if you'd like. Then copy and paste the
generated code into your blog entry -- Shazzam!

The code generated will launch a small pop up window with your video embedded. Its still a little experimental, but basically works with most video types that play using Quicktime or Windows Media plugins.
Works as advertised. Yay the internet!
