The Ever Given is Not a Black Swan Event

By transporting a container more cheaply than any other vessel afloat, [Emma Maersk] and her six sister ships were expected to stimulate even faster growth in international trade, lowering the cost of moving goods through the supply chains that had reshaped the global economy…

An extremely large container ship - the Ever Given - has been in the news this past week for running aground and blocking traffic through the Suez Canal. This has caused considerable disruption to global supply chains. Some have incorrectly referred to the incident and the aftermath as a “black swan” event.

The disruption is not…

A method which learns faster improves faster

When Satya Nadella took over as CEO of Microsoft in 2014 it was seen as a company heading towards irrelevance. Not only had it missed out on mobile and social but its core market was being attacked on multiple fronts by Apple and Google.

How do you improve performance? By improving the method

Dick Fosbury’s high jump attempt in the Mexico City 1968 Olympics was so unusual the Los Angeles Time wrote that “he goes over the bar like a guy being pushed out of a 30-storey window”. The Medford Mail-Tribune ran a photo captioned “Fosbury Flops Over Bar”. The strange new technique, now known as the “Fosbury Flop”, won him gold and set a new record at 2.24m.

Canoecopia 2021 Is This Weekend

Cheryl and I are presenting a session we titled People, Paddling and Food at Canoecopia this year. Our presentation is about how food affects behaviors in the backcountry. Well, more accurately, how you can get in front of those behaviors, to prevent food from having a negative impact on how a group functions when paddling in the backcountry, as well as how food can have a positive effect on group dynamics. We hope you find the subject interesting enough that you will attend.

Even if you do not find this subject compelling, please give Canoecopia a look. It is the…

 I worked on UI Automation using Cucumber, Java and Selenium in a company ( company name hidden due to confidentiality agreement). After creating the framework completely, when it was time to deploy to pipeline, I found we don't have devops team in the company. The devs were helping out by doing devops work in addition to their normal duties. They explained that they can help with C# code ( basically .Net core deployments into agents), but could not help maintaining agents which run JVM ( for Java code).

It was time to switch to C#. I found Specflow is a…

CI / CD for Istio Mesh
