Friday Links 22-22

Climate protest in Barcelona, one sign reads: "are you freaking kidding me!? So bad even introverts are here"
Climate protest in Barcelona
This week I have been looking at the good and bad of Agile Maturity Models. 

I haven't formed an opinion yet. 

Good stuff in "Random"!


Agile Maturity Models

TBM 29B/52: Asking for Feedback and Pushback - "Experience matters, and that includes your ability to foster an environment friendly to everyone giving and receiving feedback within their comfort zone."

What Are Vanity Metrics and How to Stop Using Them - great summary by John Cutler

more from Angela's great series on metrics:

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: An Illustrated Leadership Fable - the book as a Manga!

Learn the weekly rituals you should master as a software project manager


Downturn career decisions. - I never had stock, so I can't relate

What to do if a reference check goes wrong - I don't see the value in reference checks, but maybe I just have been lucky.


Cyclists want better bike lane connections within Barcelona and to surrounding towns  - yes please. Barcelona is pretty good though compared to Madrid. 

Deutsche wünschen sich bundesweit gültiges 365-Euro-Ticket [German] - Germany currently has a 9EU/month public transport ticket. It is not very succesful. A yearly ticket for a reasonable price could change this.

Random Protests

‘It felt like history itself’ – 48 protest photographs that changed the world - wonderful photos. Makes you want to protest for or against something. And one should.

Occlusion Grotesque - such a great idea. I don't know much about typefaces. Cool pictures.

Bill Bailey: ‘Keep saying funny things – that’s quite profound advice’ - teasing a new TV series and film! 

Germany’s move to legalise cannabis expected to create ‘domino effect’ - I didn't think of this. Germany going first could mean the whole EU adapting it. 

EU moves to rein in ‘wild west’ of crypto assets with new rules - I love the EU

Spain and Portugal suffering driest climate for 1,200 years, research shows - there are water restrictions in my neighbourhood already

The History and Mystery Of Eliza [Podcast] - this is great. I remember the first time using some Eliza clone and being fascinated by it. But this history is just good.
