RE: Picking the Tools -- Marrying processing models to data model s

For me, the blue part was their insistence that the 
opinions of individuals must not matter, the interview 
must be impersonal, the enterprise will work as it 
*ought* too instead of the way it does; our five 
patterns work in EVERY situation.  And so on.

Sort of a Taliban design:  our way or the highway.  Very 
depressing stuff.  I have to admit to having been 
that young once too. :-)  I suppose they will sell 
lots of books, sort of like the extreme thing. We 
will get the programmers who buy into this, and 
hold their heads under water until they realize 
they can't hold their breaths until it all goes 
their way.  Some turn rather blue.

Er, I think it's rather "gold," as in the classic "golden hammer"

It's just a natural human tendency to want to have a few, or even a single,
mental model(s) that 
encompass as much of reality as possible.
