Formula for making distance work

16-Sep-08

Because I have to miss the North American Fedora Ambassadors Day, I’m thinking (as usual!) about the challenges of remotely working with people.

Especially around planning and decision sessions, which are different from the what a […]

Misrouted text messages

20-Apr-08

Pardon this off-topic post (for my Fedora category, anyway), but a large body of might-be Verizon text message users are reading this, and I’m interested in finding out if my situation is unique, typical, or endemic. For the last few months I’ve been receiving from one to several incorrectly routed text messages a week. I’ve […]

Opening gambit

25-Jul-07
