Pigs and chickens revisted

My blog group is not getting off the ground. That’s got me back to thinking about projects. As we learned when reading about Scrum last summer, there are various degrees of involvement in any project. There’s that nice story:

A pig and a chicken are walking down a road. The chicken looks at the pig and says, “Hey, why don’t we open a restaurant?” The pig looks back at the chicken and says, “Good idea, what do you want to call it?” The chicken thinks about it and says, “Why don’t we call it ‘Ham and Eggs’?” “I don’t think so,” says the pig, “I’d be committed, but you’d only be involved.”

I’m a pig here, that’s for sure. Oink, oink. And projects really only work properly if there’s a group of committed pigs going for it together. But, hey, I’m easy. While I’m waiting for the pigs to come round, how about some Ham and Eggs? Come on, chickens, roll over an egg or two.
