T2R2 - Talk (speech bubble) Type (keyboard) Read (book) Review (magnifying glass)

John Findlay, RIP, thank you so much for teaching me such great etiquette for computer mediated communication.

Who knew it would become so mainstream? You knew!

I shared the Zing Technologies "Talk Type Read Review" meeting method on the Open Practice Library, and was then invited to talk about T2R2 on the Open Practice Podcast last year - and just found I can share that with you here too!

Open Business - Laptop surrounded by icons on a light teal background - lightbulb, envelope, compass, castle, flask, hourglass, rocket and others.

Non disclosure agreements, closely held ownership, and elusive secrets to success are almost cliched hallmarks of the start up world of innovation and entrepreneurship. But it is the "in the open" accessible world of open source software that has driven the new reality we find ourselves living in.  Many people started working remotely last year due to the pandemic. Enabled by readily accessible technology, most people may not be aware how much of that tech is built upon foundations powered by open source software.

Farewell friend.

Marcus & Claire

I can't quite recall the last time we met. Was it at the Auction Rooms in North Melbourne, just before you joined RMIT? No - it was after that, you were at RMIT and we were talking about some Drupal sites you'd inherited. Or perhaps we just spoke on the phone? I wish I could remember that moment, now that you are gone.

To be, or not to be decisive.

Decision making is hard.  

I often worry if I'm making a good decision, or a snap judgement.
