The Caffeinated Bunny

Standard

Once upon a time in a far away garden lived a little rabbit. While most rabbits were playing nicely together, and a few were sneaking into gardens, this rabbit was just a tad different then the rest. Unlike the other proper tea drinking bunnies this one started each morning with a healthy sized cup of straight espresso.  Thus begins the story of Manic Rabbit.

There is enough coffee table philosophy regarding the correlation between people and their names that its worth considering that even if an individual’s given name isn’t a direct reflection on them, perhaps nicknames and monikers do. A number of similar adjectives have been used to describe what is now termed “Manic Rabbit;” spastic, chaotic, fast, dizzying, scattered, overwhelming, and on the less positive side – annoying. Now, while many might consider most of that list to be less than desirable attributes, it should be understood that a critical role is kept stable by the existence of Manic Rabbit. Both the nice clam bunnies and even the garden munching variety are able to do what they do best because in the midst of it all there is Manic Rabbit running around filling in holes and gluing together the little bits and pieces that make things complete.

It is this background knowledge of elusive caffeinated bunny which clues us in to the otherwise seemingly inconsistent nature of a very necessarily body of articles.  These are the concepts and materials that bring together systems, people and projects in the fastest most efficient way possible. These are the teachings of the Manic Rabbit.
