More than 2 years ago I set up WinDbg.org domain to test how quickly I could move up in Google ranking if I search for “WinDbg”. Today I noticed the great progress despite the fact that it is difficult to beat Microsoft and Wikipedia in search ranking :-) As you can see from the screenshot below it achieved the 3rd position in the 1st level ranking:

Forthcoming Management Bits: An Anthology from Reductionist Manager

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

Being a software engineer, the author penetrated a software technical support department of a major software company rising to a management position. There he started collecting various management bits and tips promising everyone to write a management book. After moving back to engineering he became a director of several software research, education, publishing and software behavior analysis consultancy institutions including a museum. This book is an anthology of selected and edited blog posts from his Management Bits and Tips blog.

What this book has to do with the crash dump analysis then? Considering metaphorically an organization as a software machine, teams as processes and individuals as threads the author had applied his unique knowledge of software crashes and hangs to organizational project failures.
