eagle’s flight – three things – 4/7/15

eagle’s flight – on doing it wrong – 7/24/14

I’ve worked for years in software testing, finding problems in other people’s work, and then telling them about it in such a way that they will fix the issue. Along the way I’ve been told many different ways that I just don’t understand, that the problem doesn’t exist. And sometimes they are right.

Eagle’s Flight – rafting – Bonhoeffer – 10/4/13

I’m commuting 2 hours twice a week into the San Francisco financial district by CalTrain and Bart for work these days, and working from home 3 days. I’ve tried to work on the train but that seems to make me tired and its harder to work once I arrive, so I’ve found that reading interesting books is more relaxing and stimulating. My current interesting book is Eric Metaxas’ biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Continue reading
