Ed Yourdon recently wrote me in response to the most recent post about the world perhaps not being so flat. He says:

“Great blog posting about the un-flat world today; no doubt you’ve made Tom Friedman grumpy! Since death-march projects are often the cause of litigious IT failures that keep you and me gainfully employed , I thought you might be interested in some of my recent blog postings on the topic. You can start here: and if interested, take a look at a couple more recent postings, where I’ve created some quickie polls to find out why people think death-march projects are initiated in the first place, why anyone in his right mind would volunteer for one, and what “type” of death-march projects (kamikaze, suicide, “ugly,” or “mission-impossible”) is most common.”

Fans of Ed will no doubt find his insights remarkable, as I always do. Ed’s blog is also something you don’t want to miss. As Tim Lister once told me, “I don’t think Ed has ever had an undocumented thought, ever :)” Nice to have the opportuntity – at every turn – to have access to his mind. Thanks Ed!
