- __attribute__ directives in Objective-C - Both better and worse than code comments: Better, in that the compiler will use them to do clever things, and worse, in that the compiler will use them to do clever subtly incorrect things if you ever permit them to drift. (The double-edged sword that is micromanagement).
- Agile Is Dead (Long Live Agility) - “…forming an industry group around the four [Agile] values always struck me as creating a trade union for people who breathe.”
