“Software is a Process”

leave a comment »

Two very insightful posts from Dave Winer –

  1. We Make Shitty Software (from year 1995)
  2. A message from developers to users
Dave writes –

“Software is a process, it’s never finished, it’s always evolving. That’s its nature. We know our software sucks. But it’s shipping! Next time we’ll do better, but even then it will be shitty. The only software that’s perfect is one you’re dreaming about. Real software crashes, loses data, is hard to learn and hard to use. But it’s a process. We’ll make it less shitty.”

Just noticed that Google web mail interface is showing recommendation to upgrade to Google Chrome on reasonably modern version of Firefox (10.0.5 Extended Support Release)

Not for the first time though.
