Short reading list today, as I spent the morning in Day 2 of the Gartner conference, and then just got off a 5 hour flight to Miami with no in-plane wifi. But still some good things to check out below.

[article] Anthropic raises $450M to build next-gen AI assistants. The games have begun. And the customer should end up the winner. These folks are doing some terrific work, and I’m not just saying that because we’re their preferred cloud.

[article] Data-Driven Decision Making – Software Delivery Performance Indicators at Different Granularities. This company shared a team performance framework a few years back, and now they’re sharing their progress and an update to the framework.

[blog] Strategy = Insights^Conviction. I like the point John makes here about not just saying you won’t do something (as part of your strategy), but also setting up the investments that reinforce that.

[blog] Cloud Run now supports sidecar deployments — monitoring agents, proxies and more. Serverless compute, but with powerful capabilities like sidecar containers? Cloud Run keeps changing user expectations of serverless.

[article] 4 Distractions that Derail Meetings — and How to Handle Them. Useful guidance to review if you’re struggle with unfocused meetings at work.
