Welcome

Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.

Presentations

To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.

Blog

Or simply read the Blogs during my Pomodoro breaks between trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

CEO'ed to death

“HP is such a sad husk. Once a powerhouse of engineering and innovation, it got CEO'ed to death until its chief metric of productivity was maximizing cost of ink per printed page.”

Sell

Every day, with each action, one can either consume or create.

As for the create side of things, one can produce the following to sell:

  • products
  • skills (to produce products)
  • knowledge (to value product choices)
  • hope (that one day that with a significant change of effort on their part they can obtain one of the above)
  • false hope (that with little change of effort on their part they can have better results)

…in more or less that order of diminishing ethical value.

Interesting word…

“government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power. Origin of kakistocracy. Greek. 1820-1830. 1820-30; < Greek kákisto(s), superlative of kakós bad + -cracy.”

Variants…

Lemons versus cherries

. The most provocative conclusion in the paper is that asymmetric information about ability leads existing companies to employ only “lemons,” relatively unproductive workers.

ARM

I take that back. I HATE ARM's “Lost While Debugging within Stupid Quotation Marks” approach more than PowerShell. But I still dislike PowerShell. A lot.

Powershell and ARM

PowerShell has to be the most god awful language structure I've encountered in 30 years of development.

It even beats ARM on the WTF Scale.
