The Mythical Man-Month

| | Comments (0)

Just got through reading Fred Brook's "The Mythical Man-Month" over the weekend.

Very interesting and thought-provoking book! It works both as a story of how the IBM System/360 was built, a story about how software development used to happen, and a warning that we keep making the same mistakes over and over again.

I'll let you read the review for The Mythical Man-Month over on hn-books. Hope you like it!

Please try to either tell me I am wrong, sympathize with my point, expand on what I'm saying, or offer your own experiences or opinions. If you just want a link your best bet is to just ask for one. Probably won't work, but at least be honest about it. No name-calling and please keep the profanity as low as possible. If your grandma can't read it or you wouldn't say it in person, don't write it here. Thanks.

On the low-end of the spectrum, I realized that a lot of people have problems logging into Facebook, of all things. So I created a micro-site to help folks learn how to log-in correctly, and to share various funny pictures and such that folks might like to share with their friends. It's called (appropriately enough) facebook login help
