While I have personally adapted to Windows 8 and 8.1, it is a disaster for Microsoft.  I’m so pleased to read this article by one of my favorite tech authors, Paul Thurrott.  From his blog at WinSupersite.com…

At the BUILD developer conference in April 2014, Microsoft will discuss its vision for the future of Windows, including a year-off release codenamed “Threshold” that will most likely be called Windows 9. Here’s what I know about the next major release of Windows.

I found this interesting piece by Derek Huether at leadingagile.com…

I’m asked on a regular basis how Agile or Lean practices can be applied during the holidays.  Let’s face it, we have a limited amount of time and todo lists as long as our arms.  Truth be told, people have limited success using the ever-growing todo list.  You either forget your list at home, you take on too much at one time, or you forget why some of the items on your list just aren’t getting done.  Several years ago, I found the answer to my “get stuff done” problem and it is known as Personal Kanban.
