“[Screw] it, we’re building a Corvette”

“Design means making decisions,” we’re told, instead of trying to be everything to everyone. Along those lines I enjoyed this bit of profanity-laced wisdom from Adam Carolla. (Context: He’s talking about cable channels’ decision to make interesting shows for specific audiences, instead of milquetoast “minivans” that fail to please anyone.) [Source]

    I would in no way relate that to the CC decision if that was the intent. But anyway, in regard to the quote–I have had to defend halo projects in the past and found this article summed it up nicely when comparing the fate of the Mac Pro redesign, to the Dodge Viper:

    I think that article sums up how a lot of us feel about trying to make something great in a bean-counter world.
