Happy New Year!

new year 2008

Happy New Year’s Resolutions for Internet Junkies:

  1. I will try to figure out why I *really* need 7 e-mail addresses.
  2. I will stop sending e-mail to my wife.
  3. I resolve to work with neglected children—my own.
  4. I will answer my snail mail with the same enthusiasm with which I answer my e-mail.
  5. I resolve to back up my hard drive daily...well, once a week...okay, monthly then...or maybe...
  6. I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet.
  7. When I hear "Where do you want to go today?" I won’t reply "MS Tech Support."
  8. I will read the manual.
  9. I will think of a password other than "password".
  10. I will stop checking my e-mail at 3:00 in the morning.

Book Shelf

Rather a well written book devoted to Prince2 project management methodology. It does not have lofty topics yet it has a good structure and it is easy to read it.

Struggle for Better Software

In the article of Sten and Per Sundblad "Business Improvement Through Better Architected Software" different roles of the architect are suggested.

"Business architecture should be established and managed by a new breed of business architects rather than by the old business analysts. Software architecture should be established and managed by solution architects with a more business-oriented and a less technical background than yesterday’s application architects. Business and solution architects should work together to design and suggest improved business processes that take better advantage of technical
opportunities than the original ones did.

But still it is difficult to find a company where all these roles are performed by different people.

In the most cases the person who is responsible for project business-technical vision takes all these roles. I see the shift of roles, but all together they are the same :)
