Trello (maybe) Takes an Arrow to the Knee

January 11, 2017 • Collaboration

I hated Trello. Maybe that’s too strong. I was genuinely annoyed by it. It just didn’t seem to do what I needed it to do. Nevertheless I was forced into adopting it by departmental mandate. This adoption problem though was not with Trello. The problem was with me.

(0) Magnifying_glass

I’m going to be honest, selling “scan and store” is boring.  When I get asked the value of simply scanning all the documents in a file room and storing them in a repository with a simple index, I become Rainman.  “That will be $10,000 and you’ll have a 1-year return on investment.”  Usually no one… Read More ›

(0) ts-julio_25_aug_2008

At the beginning of October, I had to put everything on hold and address a category 5 hurricane headed my way.  (That means 157mph winds.)  As I prepared, I was reminded of surviving Julio in open water in a sailboat in 2008.  The lessons I learned growing up helped to understand what we were dealing… Read More ›
