Sometimes it takes years

However, to make good software, requires lots of thought, trial and error, evaluation, iteration, trying the ideas out on other users, learning, thinking, more trial and error, and on and on. At some point you say it ain’t perfect, but it’s useful, so let’s ship. That process, if the software is to be any good, doesn’t happen in 24 hours.

Once Upon – today and tomorrow
“Once Upon” are three important contemporary web sites, recreated with technology and spirit of late 1997, according to the memories of Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied. They created a 1997 version of Google+, YouTube and facebook, all optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03, running under Windows 95. Of course you can view them with a browser that still supports HTML Frames. I really love this little detail: the transfer speed of the server is limited to 8 kB/s («dial-up» speed).

The Importance of Giving a Damn – yes, yes and yes. If you look around at the success stories, most of them have that little bit that sets them apart from their competitors: they give a damn.1

How is this almost three years old and only now arrives on my radar? So many good points about software development and architecture.
