Re: PG: Hackers and Painters

It is also interesting that some of the same folks promoting the last 
bandwagon (UML) are now promoting on this one. Back then any objection 
was answered with "your up front design wasn't done well enough", now 
apparently you shouldn't have done any up front design. Just when 
they'd thought of every possible little doo dad you could dangle off of 
a diagram, they tossed the whole method in the trash. Got to sell more 
books and workshops..
