Gotta Gets It

I made the egregious mistake of letting something like 33 Gotta posts getting stacked up in BlogLines – serious mistake if you actually want to read him. Mike has some of the meatiest posts in my sub list. More importantly, Mike actually gets the enterprise and deftly approaches many meme-quality topics with incisive analysis on what they mean to large enterprises. Welcome comfort to us enterprisey folk.

Here are a couple of great Gotta reads…

What If A “Mob” Ruled Your Company?

I sort of followed the recent Digg issue, but wasn’t as impressed as a lot of others were with Digg’s position. I actually shared Mike’s reaction to a large extent. I like the crowd, but I fear the mob. Mike is right – there is a razor thin line.

Enterprise 2.0: Honeywell Explores Value Of Intranet Tagging

Mike is one of a small handful that actually shares examples of 2.0 in the enterprise rather than just pontificating. Honeywell using Connectbeam? Cool.

Talking TDD and Agile on RedMonk Radio with Coté

Coté and I talked Agile the other day for an episode of RedMonk Radio. He was kind enough to invite me into the studio as a result of my recent chapter in an Agile SQA book. We started off covering TDD and the book, but quickly got in more general topics on Agile “in the wild” as Coté would say.

Coté – you self-criticize in your post about editorializing, but you actually do a good job directing a conversation and keeping it moving. Hey man, we’re in the post-modern world and interviewers are allowed to be part of the conversation. Social dichotomies are so 1.0! I did like the setup reference to your secret mental file – a special bonus to listeners who can identify that.
