Broadway Market Take Two

We headed back to the Broadway market and ate a lot. I wish there was an Italian market like that.

The place was so packed you could barely move. You could hear the terrified screams of the butterlambs knowing their time was up.

The broadway seafood market had the largest lobster tail I ever have seen.

Target Meat


I never buy the meat at target because it looks like it's soaked in a ton of dye.

Nothing says it better than the label, "color is not an accurate measure of freshness."

Dancing with Union Carbide Barrels


The warehouse we danced in last night was so totally disguting. Now I remember why people use to wear face masks to raves. Between the dust, industrial grease and cigarettes everywhere, I am sure that it was the genesis of the cancer I will one day have.

St. Patrick's Day

The weather wasn't as nice as many of the other years but it was still quite fun. I wish I liked beer more or that the Italian festival was instead a parade where people chugged wine out of cornicppias.

My brother got me to funnel a beer through a St. Patricks horn which I am sure (e:Joe) is about to post a pic of.

Afterwards there was an impromptu bear party at our house.

The best part of all was that (e:libertad) cleaned the house while they waited for their taxi. My brother tried to take credit but we all know that's impossible.

Outsourcing Software Developers


This article is so on point. It's about IT in government but it applies to healthcare just as well.

"Unintended consequences of outsourcing for government

Outsourcing software means outsourcing knowledge. This may not be obvious, because the people doing the human portion of the service provided are still employed by the agency, yet that's only a superficial assurance. When no true software specialists are available in government IT procurement, gullible career bureaucrats will go with the most charming vendor. Too many hugely consequential technical decisions are made by administrators with superficial knowledge. Even if one refrains from the cynical position that government employees operate under loose financial restrictions, how could one expect them to accurately assess the potential or monetary value of a piece of software?

When a big company comes to a real software professional with an estimate of $200,000 for what is otherwise conservatively estimated as two weeks of work, they will get called on it. When they do that to a glorified Excel clerk promoted to decision-maker as a reward for their dedication, critical assessment cannot be expected. Because all technical expertise and a substantial portion of the business knowledge is essentially deferred to the outsourcing entity, they act as the ultimate authority on the subject matter. This is not about demonizing the private, profit-oriented enterprises. There is nothing inherently ill-intentioned in vendors' behavior. However, the dynamics in this public vs. private relationship are skewed."
