Friday Deploys, and other harmful BOFH memes – The Isoblog.

Kristian argues that people finding the meme funny should get fired.

I still find it funny. Both in a way that I’m surprised so many BOFH are still there, as well as being happy that on many occasions I’ve helped making this a thing of the past or at least make organisations aware of the deployment risks and how to cope with them.

Do I need to change? Definitely: life is all about learning new things every day and change because of that.

Do I need go get out of a job or a new job? Likely at some point because life is all about change. Hopefully I’ve learned enough by then to find another gig where – in addition to applying my tech skills – I can spread awareness and knowledge. And learn new things. Did I tell about life is all about learning?
