/ BLOG / Development Models

Ken Coar made an interesting post about an alternative development model; Bug Limitation through Optimised Audience Targeting (BLOAT). To paraphrase, it basically uses the magpie approach to control users; that is distracting them with new shiny things, so that they forget whatever the current and past problems are.

Sounds a bit like a lot of Sage software to me. Possibly rather unfair, but given my experiences with it, totally justified. Which is a real shame as it appears to work… for a while.
