SHOW LINKS: - "The Mushroom Song" by Steve Savitsky: - The SNAFU Principle (communication fable) from the Jargon File: - Appendix F on the Challenger disaster, by Richard Feynman: - Scott Ambler on Greenshifting: - Alistair Cockburn on information radiators: - Brian Marick on lava lamps as build status indicators: *** We'd love to hear any thoughts, ideas, or feedback you have about the show.
