Too many chiefs?

Thursday, August 24th, 2006

I’ve been reading the IE Blog which the IE development team hosts. I’ve started to notice that every time I see an entry it’s someone else and they’re all “Program Managers”. Is EVERYBODY a PM at MS? Is there nobody that actually DOES anything? Sounds like layered middle management run amok. From the names and titles I can see, IE seems to be divided into so many separately managed projects that they must have program-manager-managers that just coordinate information flow amongst the program managers. Yeesh.

BarCampEarthToronto takes place this weekend. I can’t make it for the event itself but I plan to be there with my family for the barbeque on Sunday.

Hope to see you there!


See you in The Toon

I’ll be at the Bodega on Westgate Road near the Central Station in Newcastle at 5:30 or so on Thursday evening Aug 10th, having a yap with some of the local Newcastle web development community. If you happen to be in the area, be sure to drop by.
