    Should have asked for everything the company knows. Or would that be a bigger cloud of DOOM?

    Do not say all you know, for he who says all he knows often says more than he knows…

    I had a manager once who heard about “link compatible object files” (don’t ask: If you don’t know, it’s too geeky to bother with). He decided that meant that we could fix bugs without changing any code at all. I double checked: Yep, that’s what he meant and intended. I shrugged and said “sure, okay.” He went away happy (and “he went away” did that for me)… and I went back to doing what I’d been doing: Which was fixing bugs, BY changing code, strangely enough…

    PHB is thinking “ Does this guy even work here? Who is he?”

    Some large project I was working had the work divided up to individual tasks metered out one task per engineer. The way to find status was over beer on Fridays. I ignored the bosses floggings and just coordinated with the rest of the serfs at the local tavern. We delivered. The stockholders were happy….

    It should be a familiar feeling.

    Is PHB wearing a different suit today?

    Sometimes I find that I know more than I never knew, but am always willing to impart what I knew that I do not know.

    An engineer tells you exactly what he knows. A manager tells you exactly what he thinks. A salesman tells you exactly what you want to hear. They all lie a little.

    IOW he didn’t know what he had told.

    A fan once wrote a brilliant letter to Cartalk, claiming that the Tappet Brothers had proved it was possible for two people together to know even less than either one did separately. It had followed a prolonged discussion of electric trailer brakes in which neither had the slightest idea of what they were talking about. They read the letter on a subsequent show.

    Knowledge is the first step on the path to enlightenment. And ruination.

    Luckily where I work (large company…three letters, the first is A) it is not about getting anything done… is about working on it…

    Heavy, heavy usually hangs over thy head, but I suppose a Cloud of Doom can also trail along behind. PHB was unusually honest today about his vast ignorance….
