On Wednesday, a whole bunch of IT people descended on McNally Robinson’s bookstore in downtown Calgary to attend the signing of the Thoughtworks Anthology. On a usual week, we’re lucky enough to have two of the contributors in town and unfortunately, one of them, Ian Robinson ended up on a flight from the UK that could have almost taken him all the way to Australia (at least time wise). More fortunately, the other author, Stelios Pantazopoulos (my favourite picture of the night below) made it with plenty of time.
Although I regret being too busy to submit an article, at the time the book was being assembled, it makes me proud to look at the book now and see the breadth and depth of the ideas it contains, and to know that many of my other colleagues share the same level of passion and enthusiasm for really finding more effective ways for IT to work with the business to deliver greater results. It’s wonderful that they can also share this wisdom with the rest of the industry and everyone else benefits from it as well.
