Greg Vaughn thinks there are only two people who read his blog. I’m pretty darn sure at least six read mine, so maybe I can quadruple Greg’s readership today.
I’m always interested in the things that other fields can teach us about my own field of programming. My blog on bridge building from a few weeks ago is one example; I also recall when Dave Thomas pointed out some relevant phrases from the U.S. Marine Corps’ document on Warfighting, and of course Dave and Andy learned about the Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisition from reading about the nursing profession.
Now Greg’s found a delightful example from the world of woodworking. Read Greg’s blog, and the short article it links to.
