Complexity of adding parameters

To sum it up in a few words the “Bike Shed Example,” formally knows as Parkinson’s Law of Triviality, states that “organisations give disproportionate weight to trivial issues“.

Music Filled Weekend

This past weekend just flew by. In short it was 3 days (spread out over 4 days) of audio enjoyment. The weekend started on Thursday when I went to see PRISM put on by the Sebastian River High School Band and Choir. I am a huge supporter of arts in public schools and this concert […]
