Today we start with some job-focused posts. Johanna Rothman gives us a good post on requirements gathering and agile processes. If your organization really requires a lot of requirements analysis, maybe agile is not for your organization. On DaedTech, we get an interesting post about software metaphors. Admittedly, our industry overuses metaphors, but this might be going a bit into a rant. Lastly, we get a post from Cindy Potvin about playing while we learn. If you are not reading Cindy’s blog, I highly recommend it. It has been mostly job and learning focused since I have been reading, but it is definitely worth reading.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
