@dajbelshaw I think @5am is on the money here.

My current title is Senior Product Owner. It does bring a higher pay band, but it also brings positional authority and reporting lines. Making the word 'senior' more than a sop to my vanity.

However, I have also seen 'senior' used because an individual doesn't like to think of themselves as being at the same level as others doing the same job. In which case, I think you are right about the title being used to save a buck or two.

@thenewoil Odd… in Australia, we’ve had a vaccine card in Apple wallet since iOS 14.

@dajbelshaw So some who can unearth and help the business to understand process (and people!), often means trawling for a broader business background than just a narrow technical focus (e.g. they’ve worked as a BA. Not that there is anything wrong with that). Else, as I have seen time and time again, a fabulous technical product is created only for the business to look back in 2 years and realise they’ve dumped a truck load of cash and still have the same people and process problems.

@dajbelshaw I’d agree about casting your net widely (all the socials and job sites) rather than narrowly. While some product roles can be highly technical, understanding the why rather than the technical how is arguably more important (there are after all a range of technical roles, architects, functional consultants etc. for the technical how). I double down on this when talking product lead.

@dajbelshaw “Sometimes it seems to me as if all the insane fantasies, all the crazy ideas, the whole world of crazed and scattered notions, into which I, as a madhouse doctor, for years have been forced to enter in the care of my poor patients, now begin to take shape and form and gain practice in the course of the world's major events and tendency.”

@dajbelshaw I hadn’t conceived of it before as a pessimism about the fading of the past. La fin de siècle.

But it is apt, for in each age it seems the external world increasingly reflects the madness within.

> Count Dracula was 412 when he moved to England in search of new blood.
> Sauron was 54,000 years old when he forged the One Ring.
> Cthulhu had seen galaxies flare into life and fade to darkness before he put madness in the minds of men.
> It's never too late to follow your dreams!

Nursie: Oh, that's another good idea. You're so clever today, you better be careful your foot doesn't fall off.

Queen: Does that happen when you have lots of brilliant ideas?
Your foot falls off?

Nursie: It certainly does. My brother, he had this brilliant idea of
cutting his toenails with a scythe, and >his< foot fell off...

Digital tech was so much more exciting and fun when it was a nice-to-have that we tinkered with in our spare time, not a byzantine mess of constantly changing infrastructure that we depend on for dozens of essential daily functions.

@mike @joseph Yes, this need to ‘rent’ everything is driving me mad. Everything is a service now so that I can never get out from under constant expenditure. Great for their business model, rubbish for my peace of mind (not to mention my wallet). And THEN they still either serve me ads or monetise me further by harvesting and selling my data.

It’s like going to the doctor, paying a consultancy fee and then having to let them take a blood donation to sell for further revenue generation.

@freddy Ooh! I took part in the names search and wondered where everything was at. Nice to see a new home has been found and looking forward to the output. 🙂

Hmm… 🤔so is my diagnostic data linked to me or not linked to me?

Well, with that much data linked to me I won’t be using that app, but still… paradox…
