Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
My buddy Brian makes an excellent point about CIOs trying to make decisions on too many levels.

Read it here.

The thing is, Brian's analogy is right on the money. Having a CIO blindly dictate blanket practices (such as all dev must be in x language) is a lot like have the captain of a ship telling his crew that they must use only left handed square knots, no matter what the situation actually requires.

Brian is pretty good about not naming names, so I won't either, but I have felt his pain in a past life. :)

Let's face it... Someone needs to tell this guy that it doesn't do any good to subscribe to every tech magazine on the planet if the only thing you read is the ads. Posted on Wednesday, November 23, 2005 6:25 AM General Interest | Back to top
