Boundaries are changing at an unprecedented pace. The things we used think of as public are now really, really public. Where there was once a grey zone between public and private, there’s now a sharp differentiation.

Software development used to be a process that was completely separate from the business. Installation, implementation and change management came after the software was finished (more or less). Today, rapid prototyping, agile development, rapid release schedules and subscription business models give us a world where it’s normal to understand software as an organic component of the business.

In the very same breath, we’ve got a pice that claims that enterprise hiring software is responsible for all of the sluggishness in the labor markets. Tin foil hats are optional. Still, the point that legacy systems have become millstones is on target.

  • Adventures in Cognitive Biases
    Great little tutorial. Cycle it around the office.
  • What is Public?
    “What if the public speech on Facebook and Twitter is more akin to a conversation happening between two people at a restaurant? Or two people speaking quietly at home, albeit near a window that happens to be open to the street? And if more than a billion people are active on various social networking applications each week, are we saying that there are now a billion public figures? When did we agree to let media redefine everyone who uses social networks as fair game, with no recourse and no framework for consent?
  • The Deep Convergence of Networks, Software and People
    In the most interesting design shops, the very definition of software development is changing to include things that are more organic and businessy. The real question has never been, “How do we make better software?” It’s always been, “How do we best solve the business problem?” Increasingly, that’s what the digital development process is really about. Software is just one element.
  • 10 Questions To Ask When Reviewing Design Work
    This evaluation approach is all about reducing the design to its simplest form. It ought to be applied to business processes everywhere.
  • Ask the Headhunter: How recruiting technology costs you a job
    Long term HRTech Industry critic Nick Corcodilos is a long time PBS contributor (Ask the Headhunter). “The reason the labor market seems less efficient is because applicant tracking systems (ATS) and job boards fail to match job applicants to jobs, and instead, stimulate phony recruiting activity by human resources (HR) departments. The employment system is now clogged with so much crud spawned by these databases that even Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen is confused. ATS databases like LinkedIn and Oracle’s Taleo — these darlings of the stock market — are making it more difficult for employers to hire.”
