Beyond Words

After a pretty good night’s sleep considering I just crossed over 7 time zones, it was time to explore Johannesburg a bit. First up was Constitution Hill (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_Hill,_Johannesburg) not a happy place at all, but one that should be seen to remind us of the atrocities of our past and make us think about things […]

Capital Structures and Organizational Pathologies: Tech Investments in Debt-Fuelled Capital Intensive Companies

Portrait of a growing company: a corporate parent with two-thirds of its enterprise value in debt, running two separate but interdependent divisions: a capital intensive asset heavy business, and a cash generative consumer-focused operating firm.

If you're the CFO, your primary concern is the debt capital that's financing your growth. You want to keep your credit rating strong to minimize the cost of rolling over debt (to finance existing assets) and the cost of raising new debt (to fund expansion). Every extra dollar paid to service the debt is a dollar less yield the business generates for its own use.

There And Back Again – Almost

First, I finally made it to JoBurg, and have a good night’s sleep behind me. But there was a moment when it wasn’t clear that fate would play that way. After about 7 hours in the São Paulo airport, I headed to the gate for my flight to JoBurg. And I sat there, striking up […]

Early access update available for the Infrastructure as Code book

O’Reilly has made my book-in-progress, “Infrastructure as Code”, available for sale as an “Early Access” release. This is essentially a rough draft that you can buy in electronic form (Kindle, PDF, EPub, etc.), which we update as I go along. If you buy the early access release, you’ll get the final release (also in electronic formats) when it’s published.

We’ve published an update with several new chapters, and revisions to previous chapters based on feedback. I posted some details on the update, and how I’m finding the process so far, on the Infrastructure as Code book blog.
