Four Heads Is Better Than One

At my company, Nylon Technology, us programmers are usually doing things commando; everyone sort of controls every aspect of their own projects. While I like having total control over my code, I have never liked that my ideas run mostly unchecked as I have neither the (billable) time nor the resources to bounce ideas off of. For my current project though, RecycleBank.com, we have four people working on it. Having just come out of a meeting, the difference in idea formalization is readily apparent. I'm suggesting ideas and the other developers are improving on them, or they suggest ideas and I can point out the "red flags". I already feel better about the next phase of this project. It's fairly amazing how much difference there is to be part of a team.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
