Here's part 1 of short animated video describing our engineering culture (here's part 2). This is a journey in progress, not a journey completed, and there's a lot of variation from squad to squad. So the stuff in the video isn't all true for all squads all the time, but it appears to be mostly true…

Amazing two 15 min videos describing the engineering culture and organization of teams at spotify.

But it's nearly impossible to explain. The Oculus Rift is one of those things you have to see to believe. Several Business Insider employees gave it a whirl last week, and we took them on a trip through the solar system, on a medieval roller coaster, and put them into a death-by-guillotine simulation.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Along the lines of the google glass project, the apearance of low cost devices like this can have a profound impact in small engineering, design, graphics, architecture, urban planning teams. Anyone in business that has a need for viewing digital world in 3D.
