I see myself at this moment in my career.

Am I Linus? Sleepless in a sincere patch of my choosing. Awaiting The Great Pumpkin.

Late in the night, I am disappointed. And with me, the friends I led on this misadventure.

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.
