  • “As a user, please be extra patient when developers tell you that they are working on a problem—it’s hard work at the moment and the time it takes to resolve an issue will be longer than with a desktop application.” Good points on debugging the iPhone
  • “I may not be smart enough to join Mensa, but I am smart enough not to build websites like the American Mensa website.” LOL, nice.
  • “in this world of highly available, scaled and performant web applications, developers have to think about operations and admins have to think about the applications.” Been saying this for a while, that all good apps teams need a good sysadmin, too.
