Timing issues

ICANN follow-up:

I just don’t understand how the world works, obviously. People are lying when they say they’ll take stories from anywhere. This story is very easy, no leaks necessary, the only digging needed is to click a link and spend five minutes reading.

[I’ll bet this is a timing issue. Namely, that folks are working on a bunch of things and it’s hard to stop and take a look at something else with any real attention, even from folks you respect. Or maybe it was break time. Who knows. But I do know that timing has a lot to focus, attention, and quality of service. It’s hard to maintain a high QoS if you also do all the work. It leads to all sorts of management strategies from the simplest “no phone, no email” policies I see amongst craft people all the time, where contacting them means physically moving yourself to where they are and praying that they’re there when you are… anyway. Timing is of the essence, and finding simple ways to manage timing is hard. Personally, I started with a metronome.]

Two case studies in feeds

Two case studies in feeds:

We all have to recognize that we don’t do everything. Even the huge companies, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook eventually learn to specialize. But the individual developers, have no choice but to work with each other. It also means you have to work with chaos — throw your feeds out there not knowing who will pick them up. That’s the magic of the web. Trust it, and it’ll work for you.

[It’s actually larger than that. Trust it, and it’ll work for you.]
