Joel on Reality

Some times seems like Joel is the last sane voice in software development. Check out this interview (mp3) with CIO Magazine. Things like “MySQL” and “data integrity” in the same sentence, Web 2.0, AJAX etc.

Perhaps we need an update of this for the year 2005?

    This is the blogging section of sitepoint – what gets written here goes straight from keyboard to web, without a review beforehand. Emphasis is on immediacy. Responsibility is the authors and fixes happen after the fact.

    That’s in contrast to the articles which do get reviewed.
