The New Methodology (of Software Development)
From 1992: What is Software Design?

Eric Raymond: “The mere threat of being sued by a multibillion-dollar company is enough to scare the bejezus out of any entrepreneur or corporate legal department, and more than enough to exert a massive chilling effect on software-industry competition. How convenient for Microsoft!“
Mini-rant: Why is it that people haven’t figured out how to do their own online research? I constantly get email from people asking me to help them research something I once pointed to or wrote about. I ignore most of these requests, but on a few occasions my curiosity got the better of me and I hit Google to see how easy it was to find the very information these people were looking for. And almost every time (with a few exceptions) I’ve been able to find it in under three minutes. Hello people, are you that clueless that you don’t know how to do a search query? Or are you just plain lazy? Update: Tara emailed me and said to “tell them to read Research Buzz.” Yeah!
