Where to work

We're scrambling to find a place with access to the Internet from where we can participate in Skype and GoToMeeting scrums. Any ideas?

Technology is one ingredient in successful long distance consulting, but distributed team behavior and educating team members to collaborate across time zones and long distances are equally important. Managing distributed projects has its own special challenges.Members of this group share their distributed war stories and discuss…See More

"I think that on of my biggest pet peeves is when I get a screen share notification from someone without any sort of up-front information about the reason.  Screen sharing is a very effective way to get the details of a problem across to someone…"

Agile application development, project management, e-learning.

About Me:
Throughout my career, I have looked for ways to build effective teams, primarily in the collaborative development of application software that shapes the way we live and work. I think of myself more as a developmental anthropologist than a computer scientist. I think of applications as means to advance human organization by integrating automated solutions with human behavior in an Emergent Digital Hybrid Culture.

I worked in state and local government for most of my career. I was the Chief Information Officer for five separate New York State agencies. I'm now Principal Consultant for v257 LLC, a privately owned company.
