Great article here sneakily about software quality, lifecycle development (over time) versus consumption that poses a question that used to make me crazy about how to write “good” software:  http://pressupinc.com/blog/2014/12/bad-software-succeeds/

The way out of bad software is deep alignment at all levels and from all stakeholders about what a given piece of software is looking to accomplish, who it will benefit, and what a “good” version of that software will be. When it’s reached that vision, everyone ends up thinking it’s good, not just the most important and powerful stakeholder whose vision is realized.

Sounds philosophical to me. And philosophers used to make me crazy. But now I’m just used to being crazy about whatever I like.  That’s my point.  Better said as a Q/A? Maybe.

  1. Q:  Why did nerds who had active blogs and were sharing their post and pics using it sign up for Facebook accounts? Or Live Space, Yahoo 360, and Blogger accounts, for that matter?
  2. (For music enthusiasts):
    #1 – An orchestra makes an album of fantastic classical music…
    #2- A kid buys FrootLoops or AutoTuneLoops or FruitPebbles or whatever recording app, makes a synth&bass tune and a catchy dance that Mickey Mouse does with Chuck E Cheese all on YouTube…
    Q: Which makes a sound in the forest when it drops?
  3. Q:  Finally, which do you like?  Did you buy that?

A: It’s relative. Tomato, potato either one you don’t like. Woohoo!  I guess.

Then again, I’m just an inmate in this makeshift asylum trying to run things.
And this is a wordpress blog. x,-D

Analyze this. No code monkey!

A:  “Happy Birthday!”

I wanted to post this great article about there being no clear intent for having all this data available nor how to use it – more for keepsake than anything.  It might be that demand will dictate exactly what is needed and in that process will be born – something you couldn’t have predicted anyway.

Just build it.

Fitness bands, smart watches, Bluetooth heart rate monitor watches, etc? Might be something to this.
Maybe…
