Context Mapping: Life Expectancy

I was at a client recently, a large insurance and banking company. The organization is over 200 years old.

It makes me cringe every time I see developers use PHPMyAdmin to administer their databases, even more if its a local database.

Some people had used recruiters to find their job and were stating that they might not have found their current job without the recruiter. I disagreed, and eventually promised to blog about it to …
