The Systems Thinker – A Lifetime of Systems Thinking - The Systems Thinker
Improving the performance of the parts of a system taken separately will necessarily improve the performance of the whole. False. In fact, it can destroy an organization, as is apparent in an example I have used ad nauseum: Installing a Rolls Royce engine in a Hyundai can make it inoperable.

Operational Excellence in April Fools' Pranks - ACM Queue
Stack Overflow's 2017 prank, "Dance Dance Authentication," was both topical and absurdist.3 The prank was a blog post and accompanying demonstration video for Stack Overflow's new (fictional) authentication system. Rather than the usual 2FA (two-factor authentication) system that requires an authenticator app or key fob, this system required users to turn on their webcams and dance their password. This was topical because recent growth in 2FA adoption meant many Internet users were experiencing 2FA for the first time. It was absurdist because it took the added burden and nuisance of 2FA to an extreme. It revealed the truth that badly implemented security sacrifices convenience.

You Are Not Google – Bradfield
Don’t even start considering solutions until you Understand the problem. Your goal should be to “solve” the problem mostly within the problem domain, not the solution domain.
eNumerate multiple candidate solutions. Don’t just start prodding at your favorite!
Consider a candidate solution, then read the Paper if there is one.
Determine the Historical context in which the candidate solution was designed or developed.
Weigh Advantages against disadvantages. Determine what was de-prioritized to achieve what was prioritized.
Think! Soberly and humbly ponder how well this solution fits your problem. What fact would need to be different for you to change your mind? For instance, how much smaller would the data need to be before you’d elect not to use Hadoop?

Adding a New Disk to an Existing Windows 2008 Cluster - Ask the Core Team - Site Home - TechNet Blogs
Adding new storage is a simple, reliable process that I thought I would show everyone. In this walk through, I already have a 2 node cluster. I am going to walk through adding a 1GB LUN as a new disk to an existing cluster.
