Nodejs in station NMBS 

Categories: Leads

Today, I saw this time keeper when walking in the South train station of brussels.

screen with clock developed in nodejs

Makes me wonder, why would they leave the nodejs logo at the bottom of the screen?

  • Is NMBS trying to recruit new techies in this way?
  • Is Nodejs trying to promote a more mature image?
  • Will they tell us more in the next days?

Anyway... javascript in the back-end of the train station. And people wonder why trains are late...

Things that kill creativity 

Categories: Management
  1. Surveillance: Hovering over adults. Making them feel like they're constantly being watched. The risk taking and creative urge hides.
  2. Over Control: Constantly telling adults how to do things often leaves them feeling like their originality is a mistake and any exploration a waste of time.
  3. Competition: Putting adults in a win-lose situation, where only one person can come out on top, does not foster creativity. Collaboration Does.
