My favourite character so far this season.
"Intoning “Failure is not an option” will be at best useless, and at worst harmful. There is no “Suddenly Go Faster” button, no way you can throw in money or additional developers as a late-stage accelerant; money is not directly tradable for either quality or speed, and adding more programmers to a late project makes it later. You can slip deadlines, reduce features, or, as a last resort, just launch and see what breaks."
"Clicking is a choice, like jumping; scrolling is inevitable, like falling."

And so. I am going to try to blog more.
