How to Build a Scrum Board

Like it:
  • How to build a scrum board

    In our current team we use Greenhopper and do our scrumboard electronically. As the scrum-master I find it sometimes convenient, as I can review the tasks and scrub the board from anywhere. But I have to say, there are some things that are just too damned slow.

    I think for the team members (as opposed to the SM and PO) it would be nicer to use a physical scrum board.

    Internet Radio

    ... online radio services make up 23% of music listening for people ages 13 to 35, compared to 24% for AM/FM radio.

    When I suggested we should be making Internet Radios at Philips 15 years ago, people mocked me. Maybe I'm just a bit ahead of my time.

    Well, I think it's time I started the next technology revolution

    I was there for the computer revolution (with my trusty Sinclair Spectrum).

    Microsoft owns Skype incase you didn't realize

    God this is so childish. I didn't think any company was dumb enough to be try these these days - hijack your browser settings when you install some piece of software that is completely unrelated to web browsing.

    Installing Skype gets your default search engine and home page reset to the Microsoft properties

    Well, I suppose Micro$oft hasn't changed very much since the 90s

    Let freedom ring somewhere else, because we appear to have turned into the Soviet Union.

    The government is reading our mail, listening to our phone calls, and
    spying on Europe. Our citizen are fleeing overseas and seeking political asylum.

    We've turned into the Soviet Union, and we know how well that worked out. Better start stockpiling beetroots and vodka.
