"One of the sad realities today is that very few people, especially young people, read books. Unless we can find imaginative ways of addressing this reality, future generations are in danger of losing their history." ~ #NelsonMandela​ at the launch of the Izipho exhibition, Book and Comic series, Nelson Mandela Foundation, Johannesburg, South Africa, 14 July 2005 #LivingTheLegacy #WorldBookDay

Can You Be Fired ... From A Volunteer Job?

"Wow, didn't see that coming! . . . Let’s see. I’m a volunteer who’s presided over a volunteer group for years because I wanted to see the chapter continue."  

Sound familiar? Ever happen to you? Apparently, this is more prevalent in not-for-profit organizations that you'd think. Of course, the skills used (and gained) can always be applied to your own small business, consulting practice or micro-enterprise. 

+Mitch Mitchell  shares his experience => http://www.ttmitchellconsulting.com/Mitchblog/can-you-be-fired-from-a-volunteer-job/

Let me tell you a story; it's true of course because it involves me. Last Thursday I listened to a message on my business line. It was from a guy who's a higher ranked board member that I am within a national organization I'm a part of. I'm a local chapter president, a position I've held for 12 of the last 16 years, mainly because no one else wanted the position and were happy doing what they were tasked to do. Anyway, he was calling to tell me ...

I don't think I could handle all those lawyers.  Everyone always wanting to be right, that's an accident waiting to happen.  I can only imagine the arguments that took place.

Happy and excited to see a +TeamworkPM (now just "Teamwork")  chat app that will eventually integrate with their flagship project management software.

Lots of feedback since the announcement. I added my wish list ...

Great idea, TeamWork team.

Tossing in my votes for:

(1) Linux client
(2) Accessible from within TeamWork with history saved to related project
(3) Searchable
(4) Logging into TW logs into chat and vice versa
(5) Able to invite external clients/team members with appropriate permissions (i.e., this chat only but not other chats; chat related to a specific project but can only see what is allowed)

Here is a related +Quora question that asked about #Teamwork   vs. #Slack  for #projectmanagement  and chat:

What's the most surprising thing about you that others don't (yet) know?

+Holly Jahangiri surprised me with what she revealed. And you might be surprised by what I revealed about myself in the comments on her article. Go read, share and prepare to be a little shocked (or to shock someone else).

Working every day with online security and technology asset protection, +Imperva Incapsula  is uniquely positioned to gather meaningful data from #DevOps professionals.

"DevOps is a hot field and there are plenty of opportunities out there—but not all DevOps jobs and departments are created equal."

Here's their new DevOps Salary Survey 2015: Facts About DevOps Careers and Salaries

In a tech field? Wondering about DevOps?
Get your questions answered and see what your peers have to say.

https://www.incapsula.com/blog/devops-salary-survey.html

This #whitepaper is an excellent example of how to take a popular topic and shed widespread light on it using an up-to-date survey of those involved in the day-to-day.

One question I had was about where women fit on the DevOps scene. The white paper has a section on gender breakdown and some insights.

"Whoopty do!" Did I detect a bit of sarcasm there, +Ana Hoffman ? LOL I haven't really gotten into Tsu (though I hear some are really making money with it), so anything new will have to trump that.

Microsoft's Bing Distill looks interesting. If they can keep the spam done and the nonsensical answers to a minimum, it might just catch on.

Appreciate the Saturday morning wake up call aka Marketing Skinny). Have a great week Ana.

+Johnna Crider Sabri Abdul Qader (the Gems & Minerals Diva) shares cool tips about #geological wonders -- in this case, #Citrine  and its relationship to job #interviews.

I'd never heard of Citrine so now I know what it is and what it's good for. Find out for yourself => http://www.gemsandmineraldiva.com/2015/03/how-can-i-ace-my-job-interview.html
