Empowering the Business Analyst for On Demand Computing

Article I just wrote appears here.

The Deer that Ran into Us

Inside the car was fuming with negativity, a whirlpool for entropy, then the poor deer ran into the side of the car. Sometimes you just gotta fight to get positivity out there, because if you are strong -- even if you do not know it -- you will materialize your desires and if they are the wrong ones or negative ones, then stand back, cause it gets ugly.

Seems the most important thing is the balancing of rest and activity; deep rest and experience of the Self.

Tomorrow I give the Software Architecture students their exam that I gave the questions to in class today.

Think they'll do well? Yeah, I think so.

Snow Flurries and SOA

With a new laptop, thins are faster and work is getting done faster. This is good. Tools enable your productivity and boost morale.

Worked on the various ways to realize an SOA; patterns for SOA realization.

Jaren Diamond's book Collapse seems a good read.

The attitude we have in conversing with others reflects our mood, our state of awareness. The more tired we are the more myopic and tend to press people's buttons by being insensitive: answering a question truthfully is good; but can loose sight of the whole. A holistic individual is one that sees the context of the question being asked and reads into it the tacit and implicit message of the inquirer. The response to the question is then more than that: it addresses the implicit request of the inquirer while addressing the question itself.

"The greatest enemy of a man is misunderstanding", as my Grandfather says.
