  • [from steve_portigal] Master Planner: Fred Brooks Shows How to Design Anything [Wired] – WIRED: In your experience, what’s the best process for design? BROOKS: Great design does not come from great processes; it comes from great designers. WIRED: How has your thinking about design changed over the past decades? BROOKS: When I first wrote The Mythical Man-Month in 1975, I counseled programmers to “throw the first version away,” then build a second one. By the 20th-anniversary edition, I realized that constant incremental iteration is a far sounder approach. You build a quick prototype and get it in front of users to see what they do with it. You will always be surprised.
