We're in tech. We're (often) Agile. We're changing how the world works. We are radically reinventing how we do business and one of the things we're doing is killing the job of the middle manager and this is a Good Thing. We'll touch on the history of hierarchy and examine why modern feudal corporatism can't innovate the way we can. This isn't a talk about Perl; it's a talk about how we're changing the world and how the world is sitting up and noticing.
