Jason Grigsby, ☁4 on Twitter: "We settled on Technical Director because we had seen other consultancies use that title and because we already had a Creative Director. It seemed like it could be a good fit."

The Utter Uselessness of Job Interviews - The New York Times
Research that my colleagues and I have conducted shows that the problem with interviews is worse than irrelevance: They can be harmful, undercutting the impact of other, more valuable information about interviewees.

I Am a Technical Lead, but Am I a Manager? - Jeff Carouth
To me, a technical lead is someone who has a solid background as a developer, and has demonstrated an ability to effectively communicate not only with other engineers but also with product managers, stakeholders, designers, markerters, and anyone else who might have a need to express relevant ideas to a team of developers. Some of the things a good technical lead will do are:

develop, update, and advocate for the technical direction of a product or part of an application;
encourage healthy debate between team members and facilitate the decision making process;
take on distractions to allow the rest of the team to work more effectively;
see and find work arounds for challenges the team will face in advance; and
delegate responsibility for areas of the codebase or project to capable and appropriate team members.

Do we need a Tech Lead? |
I admire teams who say they don’t have a Tech Lead and software is still effectively delivered. They have successfully distributed the Tech Lead responsibilities or established processes to mitigate the need for the role. It does not necessarily mean the role itself is useless. The Tech Lead role is just that – just a role. Instead of focusing on whether or not the role should or should not exist, it is better to focus on ensuring all Tech Lead responsibilities are met.

Running an Inclusive Hackathon — Hackers and Hacking — Medium
The words “ninja” and “rockstar” tend to attract men. Even the word “hack” can be gendered. As a self-proclaimed hacker, this breaks my heart—but I have heard young women say that they shied away from hackathons because they assumed they would be aggressive events about breaking into systems.

A theory of nonscalability | A Working Library
If you define scalability as the solitary success metric, then you are bound to ignore—or violently overcome—all other measures. So another place to begin to build a theory of nonscalability might be to ask by what other metrics we should measure progress.
