All software is inherently crap.

  1. Today was one of those days it really jumped out at me.

    Every time I dig into some highly hyped software, I’m amazed at just how bad it is. Today was Oracle E-biz, but I’ve seen really bad stuff under the covers from lots of vendors – partners and competitors alike.

  2. Weinberg’s Law: If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.

  3. And if we built cars the way we built programs, they would be really fast when you buy them, but get progressively slower and crappier gas milage as time went on. Plus you would have to pull over every few miles, turn off the car and then restart it, not to mention the wheels would occassionally fall off and the driver would have to enter through the rear passenger side door.
