Motley: Where has that lazy piece of work, James, been hiding?
Maven: I was just wondering that myself. I have not seen him in a few weeks. Let me check his Facebook page – that should clue us in.
Motley: It figures that he would update Facebook before talking to us. What is this world coming to?
Maven: It is an electronic universe, Mot. Ah, yes, says here James went on vacation for a while and then did a Mission trip to New Orleans to help rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. Sounds like he has been too busy to talk to us! He’s also got quite a few updates in Facebook around summer stuff that has taken him away from the computer and friends.
Motley: He’s just lazy. That’s what I think.
Maven: Give him a break. I’m sure he’ll be back shortly. Hmmmm… here is an interesting update. He wrote an article for the Shaping Software (http://www.shapingsoftware.com) blog on Lessons Learned in Software (http://shapingsoftware.com/2009/07/06/lessons-in-software-from-james-waletzky/). Looks like it might be an interesting read. I bet he summarizes a few key points from interactions with us! I have to surf over and give it a read.
Motley: I’ve got better things to do, like clean my ears.
James’ Pointer: Sorry I haven’t been around much lately. Life has been busy, as Maven eludes to. Between work and home life I haven’t had much time to breathe. Check out the article above for some of my recent writing, on J.D. Meier’s most excellent blog (http://www.shapingsoftware.com).
Stay tuned for more upcoming adventures with Maven and Motley.
