I particularly enjoyed the irony of "How to Raise Your Game by Doing Nothing" linking to a 404 page

An excellent article.

Just as with one of the previous posters, it's the way I work already. However, it's all too easy to make these mistakes, especially for any technical people, since they often focus on their technology before their interpersonal skills. This article was a timely reminder to those in the know and a good grounder for those who haven't previously considered working like this.

Good article, interested in reading more but none of the links work - I reckon you need to remove the date components

Thanks Stephanie!

The redirection process on the blog was failing and all links should now make it to their intended destination

I think it is how most of us roll. It goes without saying that there are standard and/or policy based practices but by and large a lot of what developers, for example, ask for should be something of a "black box" to them. It doesn't matter how it works, only that it does works. This isn't intended to be a cover all statement but in my experience it covers a bunch.

Cheers
