On Becoming a Manager

pointy haired boss

About 30 years ago, give or take, I made the conscious career-limiting decision to avoid becoming a manager. It’s not because I dislike management. I’ve had good, bad, and indifferent managers, and I do have some definite opinions about what constitutes a good one. I just don’t want to be one myself, mainly because I don’t think I would be very good at it.

Good-bye, Google Reader

I got yet another unpleasant surprise from Google yesterday when I went to access my Google Reader. There was a dialog with a message that told me that Google reader was going away next July 1st. The only available responses were the blue OK button and the little X in the upper right corner to close.
