Cabin fever forced me out of my house to Mugg & Bean at the mall. I am rather disappointed that the South Africa restaurant sector has not caught onto the fact that their customers who come there for meetings and to work may need an electrical connection.
Bless Mugg & Bean, they have a dedicated area where customers can just plug in. But it was busy today, and other restaurants said they could not provide plug points. So I had to wait...
The morning was however, productive, and I managed to update the blogs and begin an article on the return of the craft era based on the Agile Forum I attended last week.
The article is mostly human resources related, not IT, but I think that's good because the trend is not restricted to the IT sector (nor was it first seen in the IT sector).
I also think that the trend is good news for professionals who want to do something really well, rather than being overwhelmed by management issues.
As my career as a writer developed, one of my biggest conccerns was that I didn't want to be promoted out of the tasks that I love, and that got me into this business in the first place. On the other hand, I wanted to be paid real well for my skill.
