Excellent read for software engineers/systems architects
am 11. Mai 1999
This book, while it has nothing to do with software, has everything to do with the nature of complex systems - which means, of course, that it has everything to do with software. Every software engineer and systems architect I've shared this book with has immediately recognized the content for the allegory that it is. Were Brand to simply replace 'Building' with 'System' throughout the book, he'd make a mint in the software industry. I introduce software people to this book by handing them a well-worn copy and asking them to comment and argue in the margins. It has spawned an epiphany of content. It, "The Design of Everyday Things," and "The Fifth Discipline" will be manditory reading in my shop. Oh, the book might have something to say about buildings, too.
