Some quick updates

I know I’ve been remiss in my blog posting duties. Please trust me when I say it’s for good reason and that you’d understand.

I appreciate you sticking with me. In the meantime, here are a few tidbits that you might find worth noting:

Announcing: Zen

Nate Kohari (whom I’d like to call a friend, though I’m not sure he feels the same way, lol) has just announced the coming-out party of a skunk-works project he and his wife Nicole  have been cooking up for quite some time now. It’s a lightweight (but powerful) lean project management system using Kanban. Nate can describe it better, so I’ll let you hear it straight from him:

Nate’s Blog post: http://kohari.org/2009/06/09/zen-and-the-art-of-project-management/

Side note: I’m taking votes for who has more attractive eyewear Nate or Nicole.

Site note: His “streaking on campus” days are over, to be clear, there will be no streaking at the VAN)

    Oh, Nate by FAR!

    I have been using the private beta of Zen for a short time and believe me that it is some awesome stuff! This is an excellent tool by someone that takes quality very seriously. Looking forward to the splash it will make.
