“Death march projects occur in big companies too, but they're often staffed by cast extras from Night of the Living Dead.”

Braaaaaaaiiinnnssss!

Interesting article (from a management book) about "Death March projects" in IT, ambitious projects that are doomed to fail and eat people's lives in the process. It suffers somewhat from the usual problems of over-categorisation, but is reasonably sane if viewed descriptively.

Pre-Calling Arrangements

The official pre-Calling pubbage appears to be happening at The Bath, but there are nicer pubs in the world.

Anybody feel like going to The Castle On Regent Street for Thai food & b33r from about 8pm? Calling should start around 9:30pm.
