Looks like the Intuitive Machines IM-1 lander tipped over and ended up in a sideways orientation after landing, similar to the JAXA SLIM lander few weeks ago ☹️

Vertical velocity was a bit high at 6 mph instead of 1, lateral velocity was 2 mph instead of zero. One of the legs is thought to have snagged a rock and caused the lander to tip over.

Solar panels are generating power, the lander is communicating, although the signal is weak.

@dand @AkaSci maybe it is the other way round. They played it day I and out and later thought they could wing it just like in the game.

@georgetakei Most likely she confused both, as she is more into James Bond - Moonraker.

She’s almost there… just a little more thinking…

@georgetakei How intellectual lazy can one be? Unbelievable. It's the same level as removing the roof, as it was not raining into the house.

@georgetakei if they would really do this, it would be the most sane and patriotic thing they ever did. Unfortunately, I doubt they follow through with that. Thus, you have to get everyone who is able to vote to the ballot boxes.

@georgetakei I do not completely understand the role of a college, as we go straight to university or trade school. Yet all of them are without huge entrance fees. So I can understand why she is upset. However, if you have a bachelor's degree in business admin, you usually do not get much money in the first year. In Engineering you might get more, but certainly not $100k. You would need a master's and several years of experience. So bottom line: Tuition fees should be abolished.

Wir nutzen die @zdfmagazin Winterpause für eine umfangreiche politische Umgestaltung des Foyers im Studio Ehrenfeld.

@janboehm @zdfmagazin ach wie süß Birne. Kommt da jetzt eine Raute daneben? Symbolbild für Stillstand und Untergang. Und gegenüber kommt dann die Brandt Statue aus der SPD Zentrale. Die brauchen den ja nicht mehr.

Are agile scrums an outdated idea?

Here's a video on YouTube making the case for why agile was an innovative methodology when it was first introduced 20 years ago.

However, he argues these days, daily scrums are a waste of time, and many organisations would be better off automating their reporting processes, giving teams more autonomy, and letting people get on with their work:


A few of my thoughts.

First, it's worth noting that many organisations that claim to be "agile" aren't, and many that claim to use agile processes don't.

Just as a refresher, here's the key values and principles from the agile manifesto: http://agilemanifesto.org/

  1. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  2. Working software over comprehensive documentation
  3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  4. Responding to change over following a plan
  • Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
  • Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.
  • Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
  • Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
  • Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
  • The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
  • Working software is the primary measure of progress.
  • Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
  • Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
  • Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.
  • The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
  • At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.

Your workplace isn't agile if your team is micromanaged from above; if you have a kanban board filled with planning, documentation, and reporting tasks; if your organisation is driven by processes and procedures; if you don't have autonomous cross-functional teams.

Yet in many "agile" organisations, I've noticed that the basic principles of agile are ignored, and what you have is micromanagement through scrums and kanban boards.

And especially outside software development teams, agile tends to just be a hollow buzzword. (I once met a manager at a conference who talked up how agile his business was, and didn't believe me when I said agile was originally a software development methodology — one he revealed he wasn't following the principles of.)

@Zaktor @bluGill No. A lot of meeting could better have been e-mails or a chat message, but they are still slower than direct communication. Usually people have switch off notifications so they are not distracted by all the emails coming in over the day.

Meetings also synchronize the team which important to give everyone an overview. All are concentrated on the subject (if the meeting is short). Furthermore, it is a ritual. And ritual are important for human beings to structure their day.
