Friday Tech Roundup

A quick roundup on factors required for winning wars. No, I’m not talking about changing Presidents and dumbing down the definition of “Victory.”

First: He Who Shows Up, Wins.

Next: Quality versus Quantity is the default position. Or, as Francis Gary Powers once noted while tooling around in his U2: “Oh. Crap!”

And last, the latest replacement for Staedtler Lumocolor pens and grease pencils. I could insert the usual Darth Vader dismissal of the Death Star quote here, but a more practical reminder that leadership trumps machinery-ship is the combat between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006. Wonder what the technical debt’s impact on ops shall be?
