Today we start with a post on DaedTech where they talk about Agile processes and introverts. This is more interesting than the typical “how to work with introverts” post because it frames it within the context of Scrum and XP. It is definitely worth reading. On Flowing Data, they give us a very cool data visualization about flight patterns during Thanksgiving. The more interesting part is that you can focus on one city at a time to really see the migration patterns. Lastly, I have to mention the awesome story on The Next Web about how one man automated some of the drudgery in his life. With the prevalence of APIs for everything, this guy found that he could automate the coffee machine, texts to his wife/girlfriend and even some emails.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers in the states!
