Re: Is bp dying a slow death?
I am busy with a very pregnant wife and a two year old, but I took the time to read this thread and I want to comment about one thing.
The “grab a shovel” quote is being poorly used here. If you have a bunch of guys digging holes, and nobody telling them where to dig, eventually they are going to start throwing dirt in someone else’s hole. Sooner or later they are all going to look around and the giant mess and walk away when they realize they aren’t getting anywhere.
You also end up with a situation where guys are putting in time to write code that has a good chance of never being used, and that is endlessly frustrating.
I don’t have a solution, but let’s please come up with something better than “grab a shovel.” Software is much more complicated than ditch digging.
