The primary driver for increased hours nowadays is outsourcing to India. Having to have the same conversation multiple times due to geographic considerations will make anyones work day longer.
Don Box talks about the difficulty of finding women in IT. One side of the argument says that his thinking is wrong and he needs to observe the modern distorted definition of diversity.

IT simply needs more women and us men should do our parts to make this reality.
Gunnar Peterson made an interesting comment in saying that QCon has useful stuff produced everytime and it is noticeably absent of the its perfect or its broken crowd. I wonder which industry analysts he is referring to?

It is intriguing that there are so few corporate America IT bloggers that speak transparently. Yakov Fain is one of them. I suspect his blog may spook the process orientation out of most enterprise architects.
