zz11329426 My one-hundred-and-fifty-sixth podcast is up. Scott chats about Diversity with Aslam Khan. He is a software architect and coach from South Africa. He shares his experience growing up South African, and how he applies his experience to working with Agile software development teams. They also talk bout the African philosophy of "Ubuntu" (not the Linux Distro) and how it can be applied to diverse teams.

Though I value diversity, work in a team which is represented by people from 6 countries - I was disappointed with this show.

Can you expand on why?

I enjoyed listening to this thoughtful discussion on Africa and South Africa in the context of diverse project teams.

As an Afro Canadian, I would suggest that the blade that was Aparthied dove deeper into the black children than the coloureds or whites (whom it also damaged)....and yes, I would say children; oppression is child-abuse (see Slum Dog Millionaire).

I am hopeful that one day the human race will overcome this poisoneous fear that infects our short vacations on this good earth.

Yes we can.
