It would appear the entire industry now hates Pachter.

That deserves no sympathy.

Regarding management you half answer your own question.

It's not hard to get game dev guys going - it's controlling them and the project that's the hard bit!

There's a lot of good stuff the industry does, and a lot of stuff we could adopt. It's a young industry and the knowledge just isn't there yet. Many managers lack education in these fields and it takes a long time to learn by doing. That's a lot of trial and error.

Controlling scope and feature completion is the main challenge.

I'd like Voeckler's yellow colnago, now that he doesn't need it any more...

UPDATE (5/17/11): These inadvertently erotic billboards spotted outside various places of worship look like the work of some extremely naive — or severely repressed — church employees.

Come on Royal Mail. End that tea break early. Stop fishing the tenners out of the birthday cards. Never mind fishing the dog poo out of the post box. Hurry up and deliver our router!

Just phoned the curry house. Placed order. After giving our address, mr curry house clocked that as one of his best customers, we'd moved house.

He'd been wondering where we'd been as he'd not delivered anything to our old address for a while!

"good to have us back".

That's quite scary :)
Mind you - at University I used a particular pizza delivery outfit so much the delivery driver learned my cheque guarantee card details off by heart ... ><

Thus far google+ appears to have sidestepped the Facebook "I'm soooo tired" status update phenomena.

When some coders check in, it's wise to shout "fore!"

Argh! The new f1 intro movie has lots of snazzy horizontal lines. Immediately, my brain goes into panic, thinking what the hell has knackered all the U co-ordinates?

I wonder how different darth vader would look if he’d been designed with modern CGI technology instead of 70s plastic bits?

Rode with another cyclist on the way home for a bit round Lichfield. Think he thought he was in the breakaway on the tour. Lots of through and off. Sprinting over a hill at ~30mph was eye-watering!

Ok, so the app's biggest missing feature seems to be resharing. Hopefully it's bleeding obvious enough to be rapidly rectified.
