When each artist died, fans mourned their passing differently. With Bowie—who told the New York Times in 2002 that music was going to be as ubiquitous as running water or electricity—they sent around their favorite songs and videos, and listened to his music on Spotify, while with Prince, they primarily shared stories. But in both cases, mourners also bought a lot of music.
When people think about Prince and David Bowie, they usually think of their music. But they were pioneers in using technology as well.

Confronting the Office Jerk http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/uncharted-waters/confronting-office-jerk/ my latest for ITKnowledgeExchange
Sometimes, when we talk about office jerks, a story comes to mind. It happened over the course of a week. Over and over again I saw the same type of behaviors, and finally did something about it. It’s a story about my values, and my behaviors, but also others - and one I have learned enough about to share here. Far Away, and some time ago … The first night, the conference party, a colleague pulls me aside to tell me that “Matt, you say you ...

The folks at Jamo Solutions have asked me to lead a Webinar on reducing the cost of mobile testing -

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/551999191976304644

based on the work we did on the "How To Reduce The Cost Of Software Testing" book (2011, Auerbach Publications) and what I've learned since.

My part of the session is pure dynamics of mobile testing, risk management, and a tech techniques to reduce time to market without reducing risk. After my presentation the folks from Jamo will spend a few minutes talking about some of their mobile test tools. I hope you'll join us.
If you are building or deploying mobile apps, you can't go without testing. But where do you start? Do you go with manual testing or invest in automation? What are the real costs of automation? What options are available on the market, and how do you choose the solution that's best for your ...

In case you didn't believe me when I said open-source now dominates IT, survey says: I was right.
65 percent of companies are using open source for development, while 55 percent are using it in their production infrastructure. Any doubters still that Linux and open-source software rule the enterprise software world?

Disrupted is this "huge" "expose" on Hubspot. Is it true? Should you read it? http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/uncharted-waters/disrupted-a-review/ … my thoughts for ITKnowledge Exchange
After working as a writer for Forbes and later Newsweek, Dan was let go at fifty-two, and spent a year at Hubspot. His book Disrupted: My Misadventures in the Start-Up Bubble tells that story. This is my take on that story, my takeaways ... and a few ideas for you. First Impressions Among his peer journalists, Dan is known primarily as a story teller -- an entertainer. For this purpose, Disrupted does not disappoint. Listening to the...

The folks at QASymphony have asked me to put on a Webinar on Test Estimation Hacks http://pi.qasymphony.com/test-estimation-hacks-webinar-lp057 and it is April 21st, for no fee. I'll be talking about not just how long things will take, how to talk about risk, positioning the test effort as a set of dials - and manage the expectations for those dials. I hope you'll join us.

Learn how to deal with tough questions, but how to prepare and defend estimates that stand up to scrutiny. The conversation includes six estimating models - comparison, functional decomposition, timeboxed, and prediction, along the Guru Method...

Story
Introduction
I'm a software tester/developer who was a collaborative software geek since before it was cool. 

I've been writing about, speaking, and /DOING/ software development, software testing, and systems improvement for my entire adult life. I earned the master's degree at night and now teach IS at night at Calvin College. I also share a monthly column in software test and performance magazine with Chris McMahon.

In addition to that, I am a whole, grown person, trying to live a studied and considered life in a crazy modern world.

I have been coming to minnies now and again for breakfast since 1999. The staff knows what I like (mini-skillet with eggs over-easy and coffee), is friendly, the service is good. The food is consistent, so if you know what you like, you'll get it -- and I find a few of the choices to be wonderful. The service is not particularly fast - you'll want to slow down and enjoy, but If you /want/ it fast, just ask.The price is right. The staff works hard. The decor is clean, vintage Americana.Tip well; it is worth it.
