Wandering again

Off to London today for the 3rd PubSweet meet. 3 days of joyous banter about all things PubSweet. This meeting will mainly be a work meet with eLife/YLD, Coko, Collabra, and Hindawi/Thin Slices. We are also onboarding some potential new partners.

Then I’ll be on the road to Berlin to talk hosting and have a birthday drink. I’ll also catch up with the Book Sprint folks.

Then its San Francisco for a couple of weeks! Tally Ho!

Coko Meet

This week I’m hosting Jure and Yannis from Coko in NZ. Yannis arrived a day earlier than Jure (who turns up tomorrow) so I showed Yannis some local sights…photos from Mukies, Horeke pub, Rarawa, and 90 Mile Beach. The first shots are of Yannis and I at the much loved Mukies, around the coast from the very famous Shipwreck Bay (Shippies). We had a great few hours out with a consistent easy break…

During the day we also stopped at Rarawa beach up North. The river that leads to the beach was brown due to run off created by the rain these last days. The colors, especially with the shadows around the Pōhutukawa trees, were crazy.

We also drove down the famous Northland highway – 90 mile beach – and stopped to check out a penguin and a stingray. Quite probably the stingray was chased into shallow waters by Orca who patrol many of the shores around the north island looking for stingrays to eat.

And on the way home we stopped to check out the beautiful Horeke pub. An old pub on the back of the Hokianga Harbour. One of the best pubs in NZ.

Peopleware

Probably the worst name for a book ever, but one of the best books on software development ever… It is a classic but surprising how may people don’t know it so mentioning here. It was recommended to me by Tony Wasserman and changed how I thought of software teams.

It was written a long time ago, so you can skip the sections about how to optimally arrange cubicles! The rest is pretty good.
