at my core, I'm a scientist/engineer. Translation : A big nerd, like you have no idea

Lot of good articles lately ... Kanban, failures, disasters, learning and psych

This is just a link-puke of a bunch of articles I've been meaning to post/talk about.  So here we go (say bye bye to your morning) First up, a mildly misleading heading of kanban vs scrum.  It's really how one can be used to streamline the other. http://www.agilejournal.com/articles/columns/column-articles/6441-a-productivity-comparison-of-kanban-and-scrum Next up are a pair of articles from the same site.  First one talks about overcoming poor architectural choices and a rather candid discussion on "disaster porn".  Love that description. http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2011/10/when-clever-goes-wrong-how-etsy-overcame-poor-architectural-choices.ars http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2011/09/google-devops-and-disaster-porn.ars A couple psych ones.  First one is amazingly nerdy and in my opinion, expands on the feedback principle.  Random nerd fun fact - technically, Pe (error positivity) can be instantly recognized, which for the human brain is 130-180ms and falls with the range of the study which measured it at 100-500ms. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/10/why-do-some-people-learn-faster-2/ and not to be outdone, a discussion on sugar vs protein and being awake. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/12/why-sugar-makes-us-sleepy-and-protein-wakes-us-up/ Another article I found very interesting was on leading clever people (I agree with it, especially "create a galaxy") http://business.in.com/article/rotman/how-to-lead-clever-people/28632/0 And finally, on a similar vein is a concept of "developeronomics" ... http://www.forbes.com/sites/venkateshrao/2011/12/05/the-rise-of-developeronomics
