QOTD: Agility

Agility is dynamic, context-specific, aggressively change-embracing, and growth-oriented. It is not about improving efficiency, cutting costs, or battening down the business hatches to ride out fearsome competitive ‘storms.’ It is about succeeding and about winning: about succeeding in emerging competitive arenas, and about winning profits, market share, and customers in the very center of the ...

What’s Jason Up to?

Some people have commented on updates to Facebook & Linked in, so thought I’d author a quick post detailing what I’m up to these days. For anyone who’s wondering, as of January of this year, I am no longer at CampusEAI – I’ve chosen to join ContextWeb, an advertising network/exchange vendor based in NYC, as ...

BDD with easyb

Recently I’ve grown increasingly fond of the concepts embodied in the “Behavior Driven Development” (BDD) outgrowth of “Test Driven Development” (TDD) and “Domain Driven Design” (DDD) .

It has however forced me to become much more closely acquainted with the airlines (and Continental in particular) ...

An Agile Update for Mansueto Digital

An Agile Update for Mansueto Digital: Here’s an update: we’ve been running one of the most complex projects ever undertaken in business journalism, called the Inc. 5,000, using a variation of agile known as a scrum.

Portlets2007

I just got back from 4 days out at University of Montana where I presented a couple of sessions at the Portlets2007 conference. It was an interesting experience — most of my past experience has been at JA-SIG, JUGs, or other open-source heavy audiences which tend to be… shall we say… self-selected. I did 2 ...

Ballmer says Google’s hiring pace is ‘insane’

Ballmer says Google’s hiring pace is ‘insane’ Google also is reliant on a single source of revenue, Ballmer said. The company made almost all of its revenue last year from advertising sales. “They’re still really one business, and it’s a search and advertising business,” he said. Google’s other efforts have been “cute,” he said. I’m ...
