• I just started my first tumblelog

    From time to time, there are some random things I'd like to point my friends to. So far, I've either posted them on Twitter or in a short entry on my blog here.

    A few days ago, I took a look at Tumblr and decided to start my own seperate tumblelog. That way, I can focus my blog here on the more elaborate entries.

    So, if you're so inclined, take a look and subscribe to the feed of Associative Disarray. It should be fun!

  • Communicate to lead

    Communication is (finally) one of my most important topics at work. Steve Roesler recommends to "add these four thoughts to your leadership communication kit", and I can't emphasize his points enough:

    • Never assume that anyone knows anything.
    • The larger the group, the more attention needs to be given to communicating.
    • When left in the dark, people will fantasize their own reality. Do you want their fantasy to trump your reality?
    • Effective leaders are obsessed with accurate, frequent communication.
  • The Performance Antipattern

    You're developing a new web application? You want it to run fast?

    The Highscalability Blog tells you what not to do.
