Recently I had the pleasure of learning a more effective way to manage projects. The two day course, titled Scrum Product Owner training, was taught by Jeff Sutherland, the inventor and co-creator of Scrum and author of Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time. ...
My roof goes 100% solar, generating twice the electricity I need even with two Tesla electric cars. Next step is geothermal heating which will run off electric. Surplus electricity will be given away to local church.
I get a 30% tax credit right away, plus I get paid every year from the state for generating electricity. Over 5-10 years I get paid back for the installation. This does not include money saved for electricity.
So state subsidies radically shorten the payback time. This program ends in 2016.
Also prices for solar panels are going down while efficiency is going up.
Oil is history. I have three electric cars. Astrum is loading my house with solar panels and I will have twice as much electricity as I need. The next step is to get the oil burner out of the house and replace it with geothermal/electric. With a battery backup from Tesla, I will then be able to operate off grid. When to sell utilites short is my next question.
Renewable energy consumption is set to grow over the next few years, and according to a new report from the Economist Intelligence Unit, said growth will outstrip growth in the fossil fuel industry.
Despite this growth, non-fossil fuels are faced with political challenges that may hamper their ability to flourish.
Renewables are a growing commodity that, to
At the Detroit auto show, General Motors' CEO Mary Barra announced that the company will launch a new electric car in 2017, the Chevrolet Bolt, designed to have a single-charge range of 200 miles, and to sell at a comfortable price point in the range of $30000 (after the substantial Federal ...
I've just updated the Scrum of Scrums section of ScrumLab. I've noticed that many companies have a huge amount of waste in release teams, integration teams, hardening sprints, and all sorts of nonsense that should be fixed if you want to be Agile - i.e. working software every sprint across teams.
The Scrum of Scrums is a scaling mechanism. Scrum scales fractally and by doing so limits the number of communication pathways needed to transmit information relevant to the success of the enterprise. The Scrum of Scrums is analogous to the team level Daily Scrum.
You know what's interesting about this too. Technology actually lost. The archery culture is, as the video shows, actually degenerate with respect to skill. It would be interesting to explore this in other things perhaps more interesting technology. Are precious methodologies less advanced than adapted to other factors?

On CleanTechnica this past week, a video of a bunch of dudes reacting to the wicked acceleration of the P85D got a lot of attention. It was fun to watch, but this one below of the reactions of two ladies (especially the newbie passenger) tops that one by a mile. Check
