Life Stuff

Our kiddo is 6 months old now. That, more or less, is what's going on in 'life stuff'.

Work Stuff

I'm one of four people reworking how our organization runs project lifecycles. We've started rolling out the process and have been running our projects with this new model. I've done this on the consulting side for other organizations quite a bit in the past, but it's more difficult doing it from the inside. We've had to revamp the entire lifecycle, from project conception and product work through to full delivery and ongoing development. It's been sorely needed and it's great to get it rolling, but any actual product work on my side has been on the back burner as we've worked through this.

Other Stuff

Reading
Still working on the full collection of Hemingway's short stories. Also, finally got through the first half of The Brothers Karamazov and I'm grasping it better now. The first half was an absolute slog, but the writing shifted some and I also had some kind of shift in my understanding. Dostoyevsky is just a fucking genius...That said, If you know of any good reading guides, shoot them my way. This book, like Ulysses or any Shakespeare, should be read in a class. See more details on my Reading page here.

Watching
Station 11 has been our current watch. Not sure what I think of it yet. The way they're doing the time-jumping is a bit difficult to follow and some of the storylines move at a snails pace. That said, the story is engaging.

We watched the new Matrix recently. Fun. Better than the third one by far. However, they'll never be able to recreate the pure dazzling accomplishment of the first one, from the special effects to the philosophy to the mind-warping script. If you remember, even the marketing was super engaging yet revealed nothing. But this one was a good watch, and certainly a better option than yet another MCU universe movie.
