Friday Links 22-24

Screenshot from the game Stray. A cat sitting in front of a desk with ancient computers.

A few good articles about how to be a bad leader. 

And some depressing environmental news. 

Play Stray to cheer you up!


Hierarchy of Metrics - this is a nice happy land of metrics and probably not happening in the real world 

A Checklist Manifetsy - an Etsy checklist for new features and about checklists in general

How to get helpful, actionable feedback from your colleagues - good ideas to improve me asking for feedback

TBM 31/52: Why Does Our Strategy Keep Changing? - "You are witnessing tactics masquerading as strategy."

How Leaders Get in the Way of Organizational Change - great summary. There is probably a long list I could add.

Engineering Manager vs Scrum Master - personally, I quite like the EM being the SM. Better than the PO being the SM anyway.


The Deadlock Empire - fun deadlock coding game

Hard Drive Life Expectancy - by now I don't even know why I follow this


1 HOUR - Forced back to work at the Office Ambience | Relaxation [YouTube] - this is just a great channel 

Glassdoor ordered to reveal identity of negative reviewers to New Zealand toymaker - time to delete my Glassdoor account?

Random Cats

Stray - play this now 

Stray review – press paws for adorable life as a post-apocalypse pussycat - cute hero

Make A Plan - the recent close wildfire prompted me looking into go bags and plans in general. The pandemic and climate warming (and maybe age) turns me into a prepper

Will you be prepared for the next wildfire? - probably not
