FYI - I'll be speaking at an Agile seminar in Amsterdam on May 29th. My topic is a practical one; how to work in an Agile manner for software development when using remote teams.  Over the past few years I've found ways to successfully work in an Agile style even though all team members may not be in the same room. I'll share some real world experiences to illustrate some do's and don'ts.   I enjoy discussing this topic so I hope you can join me.  

Ciklum, one of Agiboo's development partners, is sponsoring the event.  More info is here:   http://tinyurl.com/bpk4yzg/tinyurl.com/bpk4yzg

I know I'm a real ex-pat when I read "St. Petersburg" in a news story and think of Russia and not Florida.

I can never get used to the fact that there's a Dublin a few miles east of SF...

Since I tend to read a lot from him on Twitter, I'm glad he's gotten a more interesting photo. We tend to make unconscious judgements about people by their looks, so the topic is an interesting one, given that these days all the social network sites want a pic or avatar.

Just completed modifying my Dutch health insurance policy on-line. While it's really not all that notable, it's a big deal to me because:

1. I didn't have to call or speak to anyone on the phone. (Saving me trying to communicate in very basic Dutch, having someone tell me curtly - "Oh just speak English) or worse, not understanding me or not able to speak English and having to get someone who does.)
2. I could make changes and see what impact they'd have on care and cost before I committed to them.
3. I could navigate through everything slowly, using Google Translate when necessary to understand the info (everything was in Dutch).
4. I didn't have to fill out any paperwork and mail it in.

There was some work to do in getting an on-line ID and in understanding where to click to make changes (the UI is pretty basic), but the experience was positive one. Good job VGZ.nl. Now if only T-mobile let me do the same.

I've been trying out Pinterest since I read about it in the WSJ. It's got a clean & simple UI used to display lists. Here's one on Agile Mgt books I like. Let me know what you think.

A Kickstarter project that reminds me of some indie bands from the past-and I liked the guy on the left's hair in the video they made.
We are an up and coming Indie Rock band from California trying to become a full time band.

Too funny and sadly sometimes true. The "express delivery" section is a hoot. From @McKinsey_CSI
