One of my cow-orkers delights in learning things that are relatively old news and then acting as if he’s sharing something of earth-shattering importance. Among his recent discoveries: Agile Development, AJAX, Six Sigma, and Ruby on Rails.
It’s always cute to hear him espouse the way something from 3 years ago will change everything. And it’s always buzzword-compliant too. For good or ill, he is on to the next old new thing often enough that he rarely implements much. Well, there was that Agile Scrum thing, but I avoided it. Meanwhile, I just put together a database documenting the capabilities of all the disparate simulations the programmers have built this year. Not a word of appreciation from the boss-types. *sigh*
