Not much to really say here today...just a few random things:
As you've probably heard -- the "Scott heard round the world" -- Scott Brown is our new Senator-elect. He's the first republican senator from Massachusetts since, I think, 1972...maybe even longer. (I hear conflicting information.) It will be interesting to see how this election changes the face of Massachusetts as well as his impact on Obama-care. The Kennedy dynasty has ended.
Today I have a lot of meetings, mostly marathon requirement reviews. We all sit around a conference room reviewing word by word, line by line a 100 page document -- sometimes longer, sometimes less. The process is tedious and time consuming but necessary in order to get everyone to agree on what the "new" processes and systems shall be and to make sure it's written specific enough in order for a developer to understand. We rarely get done in one sitting; hence my life in conference rooms. While I'm not technically facilitating today's meeting, if I don't see it getting done I'll wind up doing it. This will probably be the case because our facilitator will be remote. Facilitating presents it's own challenges: Not only do you have to pay attention to the content, you also need to make sure everyone's opinions are heard, captured and keep everyone focused.
This weekend's plans are the typical "getting errands done" but we also have plans with Chris' family.
Spring where are you? We've had off and on snow and rain the last few days. Keeping the driveway clear and the shoes clean has been a challenge.
Okay, enough's enough! Over and out...
P.S. Bandit says hi!
