Andrew Plato said:

Writing is ultimately a production process. You are building something - in our case a document.

Tony Markatos responds:

If everybody upstream from TW did their job, then I can see this. Problem is that such never seems to happen, and the TW is left having to be very creative in documenting what is often very primative product.

Andrew Plato said:

Planning should NEVER take more than 10% of a project's time.
(I read that in book.)

Tony Markatos responds:

I can perhaps agree with 10%. Problem is that the 10% often seldom happens, at least not effectively.

Andrew Plato:

I suggest you read Kevin Kelley's book "The New Rules for the New Economy". In this book, Kelley talks about how all things in high tech have embraced the principles of mass production - especially the Internet.

Tony Markatos responds:

If Kelly is stating that quality software is now being routinely created in a mass production fashion, then I have been working for the wrong companies and have been reading the wrong books.
