Memes, memes, memes

I've been reading this book on Memes and it gave me this idea for a little bit of java script you could embed in web pages. It would be called the meme box and would be linked to all the other meme boxes on the web. Each box would allow the user to (1) Enter a Meme (2) Promote a Meme , Memes would be presented on their frequency in a scrolling fashion.

Memes are a replicated unit of cultural transmission.

Radical Transformation

I recently bet someone that works for me that he couldn't finish a project. Unfortunately he finished it and the bet was that I would shave my hair. Here is the before and after:

We also started a mustachathon at work which is chronicled here. It's been a great experience in radically changing my look.

Presenting at Agile 2007

My coworker Steve Greene and I are presenting at the Agile 2007 conference this summer.

The talk is slotted for Monday, 14:00, 1 hour 30 minutes in Congressional Hall B

Here is the abstract:

Salesforce.com has recently completed an agile transformation of a two hundred person team within a three month window. This is one of the largest and fastest Agile rollouts, ever. This talk discusses why we chose to move to an agile process, how we accomplished the transformation and what we learned from applying agile at scale.

We are going to be talking about what we learned taking Salesforce.com to an agile software development process.
