Soul of a New Machine (1)

Many parallels between article and Soul of a New Machine.

Interesting how innovation just seems to work well with that formula, no matter which set of hardcore people is involved..

Soul Of A New Machine is a great book - and one that most of the younger set here have probably never read. For those who might be interested, it was written by Tracy Kidder back in 1981 (and yes, they had computers back then).
