One of recurring aspects of "The Phoenix Project" is a weird CXO that takes main character (who is responsible for the Operations Division) to a local factory, and explains him how to manage operations using factory metaphor.

At some point the CXO says: "you think It operations is rocket science compared to manufacturing. What an absolute baloney. From where I'm sitting, the people in this building have been far more creative and courageous than IT guys so far".

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

I finally got "The Phoenix Project" book which is a *novel* about IT management i a big organisation.

It is a really enjoyable read (but probably only if you are in IT, or at least know some jargon).

Probably only novel that is tax deductible 😉.

When I finish it, I'll finally start next sffbookclub book.

Crazy xD
According to biologists, the function of zebras' stripes is to ward off insects. Based on that idea, a team of scientists painted zebra stripes on cows. This reduced the number of biting flies on the cows by more than 50%. Applied evolutionary biology!

One nice thing about the mess that happened at NPM is that it acts as something to point to when it comes to "this is what happens when you fire people for organizing: you lose many of your most valuable engineers and staff"

fediverse poll ! 

Have been re-reading Becky Chambers books, which were released in recently, and I bought the translations.

Very good fluffy science fiction (definetly not hard-SF).

I found them via 🙂 which I recommend.

Sorry for posting exclusively programming stuff. I don't have emotional capacity for posting anything else. Stay tuned in, I'm working on fixing this stuff.

I have very mixed feelings that practices of clients I work with could be posted to the wtfdaily.

Is there an IPv4 investment fund? Seems like a good speculation short term.
