    Well. Don't make the mistake that this interview starts out a little dry, or abstracted to far from software engineering as there are some amazing Gems in there for anyone who has every had to be involved with managing or scheduling a team of developers to deliver a task - or has worked in such an environment. I'd say that's about 100% of us!

    Great and very unexpected interview Charles!

    @Parmenio: Glad you enjoyed it! It was a pleasure to meet and chat with Don. I had no idea where this interview would head, but given he keynoted YOW! 2012, you can imagine he has some extremely valuable insights for people who develop software products. I know I learned a lot from him and came away from this conversation with a new found respect for the complexities involved with shipping software (and with new ideas of how to do it in a more reliable and effective manner).

    So I guess Apple etc are succeeding on that newspaper analogy. Subscribe to the new ecosystems to survive in the future, and do not presume upon the convincing end users to appreciate the specifications of major new product releases. (c.f. car models and Windows 8 ?)
