We’ve not seen each other since March. The social impact of this is starting to show... time to look after each other.
#VanityProject is this when a leader wants to take control and find something really shiny to show off to people?
How do we develop digital trust?
A question from one of our service design learners after so much resistance previously... #BreakThrough (I can go home)
"Desire is your measure of how much a user will persist, in getting your product. Or to put it another way, how much nonsense they’re willing to withstand, in order to get your product."
The solutions: more trust in teams, more frequent releasing. It's really hard to break out of this spiral because those things are so counter-intuitive for leaders steeped in command and control
Today I closed my twitter account for 48 hours in support of #NoSpaceForJewHate
Standing in solidarity against anti-Jewish racism and all racism
So Mastodon... I’m back!
How are things?
Today is the 100th birthday of technical badass Katherine Johnson. Ms Johnson calculated trajectories for Apollo space missions by hand.
This will seem odd... but this (see last toot) reminds me of choosing a nursing home where the marketing and comms were really unhelpful, the register only gave a top level view and meeting people was the thing I made my decision on.

@mattedgar Intriguingly I'm interested in the why and who... rather than the how and what at this stage. Trusting because of people that I know face to face.
I wonder who set this up... I've searched google to find
1) wikipedia page that tells me the developer is Eugen Rochko et al. but no info on who that is.
2) Looked at secondary google link and happened upon the Medium Page of Eugen Rochko
(starting to feel a bit more assured - because this person uses this platform to communicate)
After reading their story from April 2017 I'm a little more assured. Now wondering about this 'Federation' thing. Hmm... Star Trek or MCR?
I'm here, I'm here... journey to get here was a bit rough and I ditched the mobile experience to get wider view. [Sat here at my desktop - started on a tweet on my mobile]
Hmm... as a non-coder (don't shoot me) I feel I'm on the budget/reduced version in terms of functionality?
Couldn't find the app in the app store - dubious versions of logos lost my trust that any were the app I should download.
But people I know are here... 👋
