Big Money

It has to be right? I’m referring to what we spent to buy our way onto the JUST 100 list. It certainly is good for a laugh, but at the end of the day, we certainly approach our public image with intentionality, because no one who works here, or... —  read more 

Random question

At what point does an entire team become irrelevant? Is it after they’ve proven themselves inept at doing what they are tasked to do? Is it after they’ve totally messed up rolling out new processes? Is it after they’ve done a bang up job of... —  read more 

There is no future

Mr. Podcast at fuze talking about the future of the field worker, all the while his organization gatekeeps and stonewalls. Who asked for this? Maybe get your house right before you go talking about stuff you obviously don’t know about or care to... —  read more 

Sound Familiar?

As long as data processes are built fast and cheap, we will always struggle to understand who is accountable for data quality issues. When leadership asks for a dashboard, the complexity that goes into defining the query, understanding the business... —  read more 

Job posting satire

Looking over some of these job postings and I have to wonder if it’s an exercise in satire or just complete obliviousness. “Foster a culture of innovation and continuous improvement” Entry level postings, but require years of experience. I guess... —  read more 


I never thought Devon would be this week. Failure after failure and the epa and blm penalties haven’t hit yet. Behind marks on production and ESG. Doomed to fail like Chesapeake did prior to WPX coming and sparing a few more years of production for... —  read more
