Why George Lucas, Eric Schmidt, (and Yes, Steve Jobs) Should Go to Jail: Conspiring to Reduce...

Silicon Valley’s royalty occupy a class of their own, the toast of TED talks and the model for aspiring entrepreneurs the world over. And the admiration is particularly strong among the rank and file workers in the San Francisco area. So it’s more than a bit ironic to see that these titans of technology engaged in a formal arrangement to suppress pay to the tune of $9 billion across Apple, Google, Intel, Adobe, Intuit, and Pixar. Here you thought it was only those poor Foxconn workers making iPhones in China who were being exploited. Silly you.

Crew members: ‘Captain Phillips’ is one big lie

Crew members: ‘Captain Phillips’ is one big lie It’s made for Hollywood: the story of an average American family man, captain of a cargo ship in dangerous waters, his vessel overtaken by armed Somali pirates demanding ransom, saving his crew by allowing himself to be removed from the boat and taken hostage. All of this is the basis for “Captain Phillips,” starring Tom Hanks as the titular, real-life hero. The only problem, say some members of the real Capt. Phillips’ crew, is none of it is true.

Brazil's first shared car system

Brazil’s 1st shared car system The first step towards a future where residents of large Brazilian cities can use their smartphones to plan itineraries with shared cars will be taken in Recife. The Pernambucan capital will be the first city in the country to implement a system of rental cars, taking after the bicycle (system), for short to medium distance trips. The service will get off the ground thanks to the PortoLeve project and should begin in May. Until then, Porto Digital, who is behind it all, will be doing cost and route studies that will define the usage time of the vehicles and the daily or monthly cost to be paid by users.

Attention Agile Programmers: Project Management is not Software Engineering

Attention Agile Programmers: Project Management is not Software Engineering

I’m happy to see so many software developers who are enthusiastic about Agile methods. It’s nice when people enjoy their work. However, I think there is a problem: Some teams are giving too much emphasis to Project Management activities, while at the same time they appear to have forgotten some basic Software Engineering practices. In this post I will present some examples of this lack of balance between the two.

Great article, Hayim Makabee!
