I’m happy to report that the new ShadowCulture sports site, Set the Line (www.settheline.com), is now live! (Actually, it’s been live for a few weeks now.) The core concept is pretty simple: Fans “set the line” on upcoming NFL games in a weekly contest to be crowned the best Internet oddsmaker. Add some funny game previews and game-by-game forums and you’ve got yourself a sports site the whole family can enjoy. : )
The site came together thanks to the contributions of many people far more talented than I. If you’re a fan of the American football, take the weekly contest for a spin (that number again: www.settheline.com). It’s easy to do and, of course, totally free. If you have any feedback on the experience, feel free to post it here!
Bug Bash is a comic strip written and illustrated by Hans Bjordahl. Bug Bash is a comic strip about technology: managing technology, the business of technology. It's about project management and managing projects through the dull world of Rational Rose, use cases, and requirements. Functional requirements, user requirement, functional specifications, design specifications, call it what you want but it's still the bane of project managers. And when you're done with that, you can think about all the fun that comes with timelines, scheduling, estimates (PERT estimation anyone?) and resourcing until Gantt charts are coming out of your ears. Let's not forget the risk management in the software engineering life cycle. Maintaining the project is just as much fun, managing what was initially set out in requirements and trying to keep feature creep / scope creep in check with change management. If any of these words send nightmares to you, the project manager, then this site probably rings true with you. (Who Links Here?)
