Goodbyes

Goodbye by mira_photo

The acquisition is done.

We are retained. “(O)ur jobs are unaffected.”

“(We) have a choice.”

To co-workers who’ve left or are soon to go:

I miss learning from you. I miss laughing.

You will create products.

You will build teams.

I look forward to it.

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.

One thought on “Goodbyes

  1. “Ghost in the Shell” quote:

    “Major Motoko Kusanagi: I wonder where I’ll go now. The net is vast and infinite.

    Puppet Master: Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.

    Major Motoko Kusanagi: You talk about redefining my identity. I want a guarantee that I can still be myself.

    Puppet Master: There isn’t one. Why would you wish to? All things change in a dynamic environment. Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.”

    Strange that I came across it now…
