What was surprising to me was that they use the Scrum methodology extensively."

Of course such insane arrangements with respect to investments lead to a portion of the financial meltdown.

Oh no...

This may be a valid analogy, but I can totally see it getting out of hand.

The Pirate Bay Trial, Prosecutor:

Submission + - Looking inside the Second Life data centers

An anonymous reader writes: InformationWeek looks inside the data centers that power the game Second Life. Tidbits from the article: The software architecture is an extension of the virtual world metaphor of Second Life. At any time, it's possible to walk into one of Second Life's two data centers, pat one of the rack-mounted servers, and say that particular server is running virtual New York, or San Francisco, or ancient Rome, and imagine itty-bitty people and buildings inside the 1U rack-mounted servers. Linden Lab, which develops and maintains Second Life, runs 2,000 Intel- and AMD-based servers in two co-location facilities in San Francisco and Dallas. And, contrary to widespread belief among Second Life users, Linden Lab has not decided whether to open-source the Second Life server software.
