Another Happy Mac User

Fred Brooks published The Mythical Man-Month in 1975. It quickly became a must-read book for technology managers and Brooks is recognized as one of the leading thinkers in the field of managing large-scale technology projects.

Brooks’ law: Adding people to a late software project makes it later.

He was interviewed recently in Fortune magazine here.

My favourite part of his interview?

Q: What’s your computer setup today?
A: I happily use a Macintosh. It’s not been equalled for ease of use, and I want my computer to be a tool, not a challenge.

Fred Brooks. Truly a man of genius.
