    1. Secrets management is one of the most sensitive and critical disciplines in all of DevOps and is becoming increasingly important as we move toward a fully continuous deployment world. AWS Keys, deploy keys, ssh keys are often the key attack vector for a bad actor or insider threat, and thus all users and customers are concerned about robust secrets management.
    1. Where I track capacity, appetite, & commitments. A place where I can stay organized while also allowing transparency for my teams & anyone else who is interested in what I’m currently focused on.

      "My Plate"

    2. If something is important enough to write down and keep track of, it’s important enough to schedule.
    3. One of the main goals is to avoid some giant, never-ending task backlog, either within the current week’s “To do later” section, constantly being carried over week after week and growing in size, or in a separate backlog.md, or similar, file, also just growing in size and causing most tasks to be completely burried & lost. Either a task should be scheduled as “I plan to work on this” or it should be completely discarded (it can always come back later if it turns out to be important).
    1. Things that arose throughout the week that captured my interest or demanded my attention and which I felt the need or capacity to do now.
    2. Tasks which I am giving myself permission to avoid doing at all this week. The checkboxes here are for indicating that these tasks have been scheduled elsewhere.
    3. Tasks that I may have been forwarding along or which I may have initially added to the “To do later” list which I no longer plan to do – if they happen, great, but I’m not actively planning to complete them.
    1. In our review of engagement issues, the first area we found is the importance of simple, clear goals. When people have clearly defined goals that are written down and shared freely, everyone feels more comfortable, and more work gets done. Goals create alignment, clarity, and job satisfaction—and they have to be revisited and discussed regularly.
    1. Early compilations involved various combinations of four crucial operations: storing, sorting, selecting, and summarizing, which I think of as the four S’s of text management. We too store, sort, select, and summarize information, but now we rely not only on human memory, manuscript, and print, as in earlier centuries, but also on computer chips, search functions, data mining, and Wikipedia, along with other electronic techniques.
    1. managing yourself and others.

      Authors promote two ideologies.

      1. Managing Self: The Five Eds (well, first Three) from Agile Leadership by B. Joiner
      2. Managing Others: at its base is Dave Pink's Drive model: Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose. Authors then go to explain some ways of achieving each of previous.
    1. We believe everyone deserves to report to exactly one person that knows and understands what you do day to day. The benefit of having a technically competent manager is easily the largest positive influence on a typical worker’s level of job satisfaction. We have a simple functional hierarchy, everyone has one manager that is experienced in their subject matter.
    1. However, please note the following: it will depend on how those subdomains are defined. Are they just subsections of a project that belongs together like help.example.com or blog.example.com (and many other possible arrangements that are part of one and the same setup)? In such a case, using the same policy is appropriate. Problems arise when completely different projects which have little to do with one another and whose data collection practices also differ so significantly that they require different privacy policies.
    1. Scrum means that “you have to get certain things done with those two weeks.” Kanban means “do what you can do in two weeks.”

      If you get a choice, push for Kanban over Scrum

    2. What people will say is that estimates are for planning – that their purpose is to figure out how long some piece of work is going to take, so that everybody can plan accordingly. In all my five years shipping stuff, I can only recall one project where things really worked that way.

      Project estimations are just energy drainers and stress producers

    3. Be explicit about the difference between hard deadlines

      Different types of deadlines:

      • Hard deadline - something seriously bad to the business will happen if the deadline isn’t met
      • Soft deadline - somebody will look bad if the deadline isn’t met
      • Internal deadline - target internal to the team that will not affect anybody outside of the team
      • Expected completion date - team currently predicts that work will be completed

    1. L’appel de la liberté se fait entendre dans le management, mais une fois encore les managers naviguent de Charybde en Sylla : comment concilier la demande de plus de liberté de mouvement de certains collaborateurs, avec la nécessité de produire plus de résultats en respectant plus de normes ? Avec, à l’horizon, cet impératif de recréer du sens, de refonder l’autonomie du travail dans des organisations kaléidoscopes…

      Question argumentative. L'autrice pose le problème qui occupe sa réflexion et qui induit le thème du débat. La question reformule les problématiques énoncées en début de texte.

    2. La capacité à gérer les entre-deux, en créant de la continuité et de la substance pour porter les transitions entre les pics d’intensité. Cela demande d’acquérir des ressources et de développer des capacités spécifiques de management et d’innovation permettant de générer ces avantages périodiques et de garantir la pérennité.

      Point de vue de l'autrice en réponse à l'avantage concurrentiel transitoire.

    1. wouldn't let me send a two-line memo to another department without showing it to him before I sent it. John's leadership style was oppressive. He micr0-managed everything. I learned from the hellish experience of working for him that unless somebody wants another set of eyes on their correspondence, it's insulting and a waste of time to micro-manage your team members' email messages.
    2. As a matter of fact, you do pay me to think

    1. Relational databases are designed around joins, and optimized to do them well. Unless you have a good reason not to use a normalized design, use a normalised design. jsonb and things like hstore are good for when you can't use a normalized data model, such as when the data model changes rapidly and is user defined. If you can model it relationally, model it relationally. If you can't, consider json etc.
    2. Joins are not expensive. Who said it to you? As basically the whole concept of relational databases revolve around joins (from a practical point of view), these product are very good at joining. The normal way of thinking is starting with properly normalized structures and going into fancy denormalizations and similar stuff when the performance really needs it on the reading side. JSON(B) and hstore (and EAV) are good for data with unknown structure.
    1. The partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2) should be maintained in a normal range (35–40 mmHg), but for temporary management of acute intracranial hypertension, inducing cerebral vasoconstriction by hyperventilation to a PCO2 of <30 mmHg is occasionally warranted.
    2. The goal of resuscitation and management in patients with head injuries is to avoid hypotension (SBP of <100 mmHg) and hypoxia (partial pressure of arterial oxygen of <60 or arterial oxygen saturation of <90%).

    1. Here are the top consent management platforms platforms, with comparisons around look, feel, and functionality.
    2. Another value-add of CMP tech is that it can sniff the user's location and show the prompt just to EU residents. This helps to comply with the law while not intruding on non-EU user experiences.
    3. haven’t consent tools been around for a while? Sort of! Ever since May 2011, when the EU Cookie Directive went into effect, most EU sites have added cookie notification bars to the top or bottom of their pages. This prompted many third-party solutions to pop-up, including WordPress plug-ins and the leading tool from Silktide. These tools are still around, and many sites continue to use them under the GDPR. However, these solutions were built for the older law, and the GDPR is much more specific about requiring explicit opt-in consent. Most of those older tools don't provide this, nor do they integrate with downstream ad partners, paving the way for the more sophisticated CMPs.
    4. Consent Management Platforms (CMPs), an advertising tech tool for collecting user consent and passing that data to downstream ad partners

    1. we make it easy to implement using our Consent by Geolocation feature that auto-identifies the location of the website visitor and applies the correct consent notice and behavior based on the visitor’s current location. For example, simply add PreferenceChoice Cookie Consent and Website Scanning to your website, and the functionality of your consent notice will automatically update to display a CCPA-compliant consent notice to a visitor in Los Angeles, and a consent notice in compliance with ePrivacy and GDPR to a visitor in London.
    1. The truth is that building an innovative organization from top-down is a dynamic process.  It often involves people at all levels of the company. But, the fundamental narrative across the board with innovative organizations is the culture. The company culture has to include employees who feel connected to the organization and want to contribute value.

Don’t you think? What comes to your mind when I say “E-commerce”? 99.99% of the time it’s “Amazon”, it's not because it is famous although it is an important factor, the customer service provided by Amazon is exceptional. This is the quote by Jeff Bezos, the founder of the e-commerce giant and the world’s richest man- “If there’s one reason we have done better than of our peers in the Internet space over the last six years, it is because we have focused like a laser on customer experience, and that really does matter, I think, in any business. It certainly matters online, where word-of-mouth is so very, very powerful.”                                                                                      -Jeff Bezos He also encourages businesses to optimize businesses to become more customer-oriented.

    1. greater integration of data, data security, and data sharing through the establishment of a searchable database.

      Would be great to connect these efforts with others who work on this from the data end, e.g. RDA as mentioned above.

      Also, the presentation at http://www.gfbr.global/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/PG4-Alpha-Ahmadou-Diallo.pptx states

      This data will be made available to the public and to scientific and humanitarian health communities to disseminate knowledge about the disease, support the expansion of research in West Africa, and improve patient care and future response to an outbreak.

      but the notion of public access is not clearly articulated in the present article.

    2. platform

      Does it have a name and online presence? The details provided here go beyond what's given in reference 13, but some more detail would still be useful, e.g. to connect the initiative to efforts directed at data management and curation more generally, for instance in the framework of the Research Data Alliance, https://www.rd-alliance.org/ .

    1. We’re excited to announce that The Francis Crick Institute have partnered with our portfolio companies Symplectic and Figshare to enable richer profiles for their researchers and to make it easier for them to publish their papers and data Open Access.

    1. I believe that many of the current challenges in public sectors link back to two causal factors: googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1560300455224-0'); }); The impact of increasing reactivism to politics and 24-hour media scrutiny, in public sectors (which varies across jurisdictions); and The unintended consequences of New Public Management and trying to make public sectors act like the private sector.
