What I Read and Commented On Yesterday in the Lean and Operations Blogosphere

2

Blog Comment SpamI was traveling yesterday, so I read a number of blog posts that I kept open in my browser for my flight. I wrote an unusually high number of blog comments on other sites yesterday, so it ended up feeling like at least a few blog posts… so I'm tapped out.

In the spirit of a “blog carnival” as we often do, I'm going to link to the stuff I read and commented on, below.

  • Jamie Flinchbaugh wrote a post saying that people and employees should not be called “assets” since it might invoke the idea of slavery. I disagreed in my comment here.
  • Pete Abilla (@shmula) wrote a new post in a series he's doing about Lean at Starbucks – here is my comment. Instead of talking so much about the “What” and the “How,” Pete focuses on the “Why?” as a starting point.

    I Like the Blog Carnival idea…you should do it more often.

    It would be cool if there was a way to RSS or consolidate the comments you make on other blogs/articles. I would like to do something like that because I may not have time to write a blog post, but have commented elsewhere. I am suprised something like this hasn’t been developed yet. (Disqus might do it but not every post uses it for comments).
