Anyone going to Agile 2006?

If anyone out there is going to be at Agile 2006 next week drop me a line. I won't be attending, but it's in my backyard and would be great to meetup if the schedule works...

Support Your Local Minutemen!

I am a huge fan of the minutemen, and if you were not already aware they have a 2-disc DVD set called "we jam econo" that has just been released for the bargain price of US $20. You are advised to purchase this set! :-) I have also adopted that phrase as my new mantra for enterprise architecture - I believe in jamming econo whenever you can, and especially before you jam big spend-o on large scale enterprise software.

On a related note, I have been trading music recommendations for awhile now with certain friends. I have been amazed a few times that James can't download certain tracks because of his UK-ness, which is crazy. I guess I thought we were in a global economy or something.

There are obvious historical economic forces at work, but if the mythical alien landed and looked at this situation, wouldn't he/she/it think that media would be the first leveled commodity in a globally networked market?

Medical Technology Company Seeks High Quality Web Developers

I'm aware of a Fortune 250 medical technology company in the Minneapolis area that is seeking high quality web developers to hire as permanent employees. Definitely need experience in the Java EE world, but interest in and awareness of various other web technologies is very desirable, as is experience with Agile techniques. The group you would join is very engaging, tied to high visibility business initiatives, focused on user-centered design and staying on top of technology trends. If you are interested and fit the bill, or know someone who is, please drop me an email for details...
