  • Physics and the Law of Lossy Requirements

    This post over at The Eternal Universe is a physicist complaining about how he’s not seeking a computer science degree, yet he has to keep learning computer languages just to publish physics papers. He should have read my previous post about the Law of Lossy Requirements . The cheapest way to capture...

  • Software is Not Coding, It’s A Cooperative Game of Communication by Bruce Nielson

    In my post on “code is really design” post, I mentioned that I would further address the paradox that software is created in “thoughts units” but the most important people to the success or failure of a project are the sponsor and customer .

Interestingly, there are two kids of compression, lossless and lossy. Lossless compression is like .zip compression, you put a file of, say, 100kb in and the end result is a...

  • Does Robert Glass’ Formula for Estimation Success Actually Work? by Bruce Nielson

    In a previous post I mentioned Robert Glass’ “fact” that estimates are made at the beginning of the project before the problem is even defined, thus the estimate is invalid from the get go. While I don’t disagree with Glass, I do believe he is under estimating (pun intended!) why we human’s prefer estimates...
