Overheard on the Street

I know it's been a few days since I updated; I was in Chicago for a long weekend of fun, sun.... err... food and museums, anyway! We ate at Alinea and Charlie Trotter's, and generally had a grand time. Anyway, much as I love food, this is a testing blog, not a food blog.

So put this down to overheard on the street. We were walking down Wacker Dr headed vaguely toward Sears Tower, surrounded by 30+ story buildings plastered with bank names. And this was the conversation at lunch:
"AJAX callbacks will increase the load on your database"
"No way. We'll handle it all in cache."

I hadn't thought of Chicago as a tech center. But amusing nonetheless...

Oh, and just because we can't have a completely light post, check out Mike Bowler's Grouping of Agile Practices. It's an interesting read.
