I, I, I... This book is awfully ego

The most boring useless book of 2013 ( )

The book is an easy reading with a pack of good experiences and observations about working in a chaotic and creative start up (wordpress). ( )

Sold me on Automattic as a company, pointed out many of the things I worry about with Continuous Deployment, but no solutions. Esp uncomfortable with how he characterized his time on happiness - he didn't like the metrics, but no ideas for solutions? blah ( )

Pleasant read but I have a problem following his logic ( )

This book could have been titled "Microserfs, twenty years later". Scott Berkun, a former Microsoftie himself, tells the story of his year working at Wordpress/Automattic, a successful software as a service startup run by the prodigy Matt Mullenweg. While Berkun's fawning over Mullenweg becomes grating rather quickly, the story about Berkun's entry into this virtual global company is told with aplomb. Much of the internal communication relies on a stream of team and company blogs as well as IRC and Skype. Given the video capabilities of Skype, though the company is composed mostly of males, I doubt whether the titular claim of "The Year Without Pants" is even partially true.

Mullenweg requested Berkun's service to create the first level of middle managers/team leaders at Automattic, up to then run by direct interaction with the founder. This meant that issues not focused on by Mullenweg were allowed to drift (e.g. Wordpress did not fix a broken LinkedIn connection for many months). Creating areas of responsibilities and fixed teams helped transform the startup company into a more stable business. Like so many accounts (and also novels), a lot of the book is spent on getting to know the people and forming the team. Unfortunately, the reader is not told a single management decision where a difficult trade-off had to be made. It's all about being captain in mild and beautiful weather. The necessity for the middle management layer (and its effectiveness) is thus not demonstrated. An additional 50 pages treating management issues is sadly missing from this book. Hasta la vista comes all too soon. ( )
