Semantic Overload and Agile

One thing that drives me crazy about the agile world is the incredible prevalence of semantically overloaded terminology. Simply put, semantic overload is a word that has different meanings in different contexts. The problem with this is that it can create confusion. For example, if I tell you that I'm going to run to the store, you don't actually know if I'm going to drive or jog. You might assume one or the other. You might make some inferences based on context or past history. But you don't know

I made some art... Or did I?

The subjective nature of art often leaves us questioning whether or not something is art. Is it art if someone is just slinging paint against a canvas? What if it could have been done by a toddler? What if it was done by a toddler? Nowadays, with computers, a new kind of question is arising: How much human intervention is required to make art?

New Site!

If you've been paying attention to my site, you've probably noticed that it looks a little different than it used to. It's not just the look of the site though, it's a whole new website, inside and out. I've completely rebuilt the site from the ground up in Craft. Craft offers a lot of development opportunities that were prohibitively time consuming in my old CMS, Wordpress. I've already done a few things that I'd been putting off in Wordpress and plan on doing quite a few more.
