With regards to the Intercom article, what about the
reasons for "rolling your own" from an employer's

I mean, as an author, I like to add such skills and
the experience and project is cool, and quite a resume

But--here I go, am about to tag myself as a faithful
WWP-addict <lol!>--is the reason for rolling your own
in this case appropriate and, moreover, is the result
single sourcing?



P.S. Am not asking if you think single sourcing is
real, myth, a waste of time, or the coolest thing
since the pan galactic gargleblaster--am wondering
about the Intercom article. I wonder if this article
accurately represents the scope of the single sourcing
discussion at the last STC annual shindig?
