Welcome to my blog. My intentions are to write about software development, including the temperament and character of individuals, teams and organizations. I hope to post something new once or twice a month. I don't expect to become a prolific writer or become the next Joel on Software. Rather, my motivations are as follows. I want somewhere that I can record my thoughts; I like how my thoughts often come together better when I take the time to write them down and think them over. I also tend to remember things in broad strokes rather than in the details so having somewhere to record the details appeals to me. Finally, I want an outlet where I can share some of my thoughts and some of my work with a few people. Beyond that I have no expectations. We'll see how it goes.
