   RE: [xml-dev] Don't Let Architecture Astronauts Scare You

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm not sure I mind the reinvention.  That can be 
cleaned up in documentation if the chair has the 
background required for the job.  It is the insistence 
that the wheel is too complicated and interferes 
with their traditional use of sleds pulled by 
slaves that grinds.

I am to play a gig this weekend for a group of 
"traditional" music fans who drive BMWs with AC 
and DVD players to the show but object if musicians 
use microphones.  Let's say, I will take their 
money but won't take them very seriously.

I have also noticed in these design meetings that people tend to reinvent
the wheel.  Not so much because they are not happy with the wheel but more
because out of in experience they dont know that the wheel exists.  So they
invent it again and think that they have accomplished a great feat.
