sometimes it takes a tough man to make a tender chicken

how darwinism reflects on programming, and the concept of thriving / surviving. Darwin finds that it is not the strongest, nor the brightest, nor the prettiest of the species survives, but the ones that are most apt to adapt (change-ready).

Serendipitiously, I came across 'a 50%-good solution that people actually have solves more problems and survives longer than a 99% solution that nobody has because it’s in your lab where you’re endlessly polishing the damn thing. Shipping is a feature. A really important feature. Your product must have it.'
