Steve put our talk up

Steve Greene put up our Chicago Scrum gathering talk. We had a great time, saw Ken Schwaber and Mike Cohn, hung out in Chicago. I even got to go by the offices of 37 signals which was interesting.

Just finished "Blood Meridian"

I just finished "Blood Meridian" by Cormac McCarthy. I'm starting on all the pretty horses. I feel that I missed something in Blood Meridian, it was a good book, but I think I missed the main metaphor. I did like the section where the Judge character explained why war was the ultimate game: because you have to wager the ultimate bet, your life.

Just finished 'Then we came to the end'

I just finished Josh Ferris's "then we came to the end," it covers office humor with a slight edge. Another summer reading recommendation. I'm going back to Cormac McCarthy and am going to read "The Border Trilogy" and "Blood Meridian."
