‘Courage’ by The Whitest Boy AliveI was in a band once, The Brother Project, and we had a song called “Rough Ground” that sounded just like this. Good tune.

Thought this was a good article on how to create a proper war room so they are useful and always available.

"War rooms help your team work better together. When you capture every decision and put it on the wall, you don’t have to wonder if everyone is on the same page. The room is the page. The more you put on the walls, the more shared understanding you build. As a bonus, you spend less time revisiting already-discussed issues. A war room works great for long-term projects of a few days or a few weeks—and it also works great for one-off meetings."

"I’m surprised by how many tech companies make space for a foosball table (fun but seldom used), yet don’t dedicate a room to their most important project." cough cough

"You don’t want your war room turning into just another conference room. For best results, remove your war room from your company’s room-scheduling calendar."

"And for goodness sake, paint all the walls, otherwise, get ready to have somebody write “Not a whiteboard!” in whiteboard marker on the unpainted walls."

"The ideal war room has furniture that’s lightweight or on wheels, so it’s easy to move."

‘Coming of Age’ by Foster The PeopleReminds me of an upbeat “Year of the Cat” by Al Stewart (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM7LR46zrQU). It’s a bit more band oriented than their previous effort, which I like. Need to seek out the rest of the record.

‘Writing On The Wall’ by Bear’s DenRandom tune came up on Sirius the other night. Really nice. Bonus is the Buffalo Sabres hat the lead singer is wearing in the video.

don’t know each other -> work well together -> get on each other’s nerves -> at each other’s throats -> full on escalation to boss that the other person is an asshole -> finished!

Doing a little sleuthing trying to figure out who is playing when at this year’s Boston Calling music festival…

Friday:

Jack Johnson is playing Toronto with Edward Sharpe on Thursday so that likely means they are both playing Friday at Boston Calling.

Saturday:

Looking at Death Cab, they are playing Canandaigua with The Head and the Heart and Built To Spill on Friday so that probably means they play Boston on Saturday. Hell yes.

Bastille is playing Toronto on Friday and Montreal on Sunday.

Sunday:

Modest Mouse’s website says they are playing all 3 days but that’s a bit excessive. I’d be ok with that but still doesn’t sound right so I’m thinking Sunday as the headliner since the first 2 days are covered pretty well.

moviecode:

In Jurassic Park there is unknown but real looking source code (possibly for an SGI UNIX machine) (source @carlschrammel)

I’ve always wondered about the code in this scene. It’s such a great scene too with Sam Jackson and Wayne Knight.
