Reading “The Year Without Pants” by Scott Berkun. Interesting that (at least at the time he worked there), all of Automattic communicates almost exclusively through P2 blogs and IRC, both of which maintain an infinite, publicly available (withing the company) history of all communication, decisions, discussions, etc…

The Hunger Games – both the movie and the book were great for different reasons…

It seems clear that the director and writers of The Hunger Games walked off the set before the last twenty minutes were filmed.

Or, why does every director nowadays think it’s a good idea to film the climatic finale under cover of darkness?┬áMaybe that works well in the theater but does anyone really watch movies in the theater anymore?

Several really powerful elements of the story were unfortunately purged while translating the last bits of the novel into the movie.
