He lost his touch.

Hrmm...sorry about that. Somehow it got chopped.
just me -- it isn't my eminence, it's Joel. He's sounding more and more like an entitled-feeling rich guy.
And I happen to agree. I was arguing exactly this point about four months ago to my colleague, who thought that using some kind of performance metric (number of bugs fixed, whatever) is required.
He's extremely efficient he produces or rather re-produces more whilst on vacation than he does whilst at work.
I don't know why he thinks there's only three Management methods, he seems to be missing out herding cats.

so I should read this article to read some rich-guy entitlement stuff?
Ok, that is a reason (not sarcastic - this is fun).
Not only thinks there are only 3 methods, but he dismisses the first 2 for the "last one and only".
And yeah, I think he got a Ph.D. or something

I think we covered this ground. The whole 'abdication of management' is a retread of the employer/employee line of control business.
I think he reads CoT. He may, in fact, be me.
"they [the management] force everybody in the system to come up with their own way of doing it."
Funny. Good managers *want* their employees to have this level of control. Because they don't think they are God's gift to humanity, I think. Joel is different though.
"I think he reads CoT. He may, in fact, be me."
"... gift to humanity, I think. Joel is different though."
Inconsitency in written communication seems to be a common trait among software developers.
Has my post been deleted?

He lost me at intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation. He would have lost me at the joke, but I figured "Why not, I'll at least she what the guy has to say."
