Why Specs Matter

I wonder if Mark Pilgrim's Why Specs Matter post could be applied to other facets of life, not just software development. Still..

Most developers are morons, and the rest are assholes. I have at various times counted myself in both groups, so I can say this with the utmost confidence.

That's how it starts, and I can second that - err, no, I don't mean that Mark Pilgrim has been a moron or an asshole, although if he himself says so... ;) I mean that *I*, myself, have been in both groups at various times, multiple times, so yeah, he got that part right!

Now go read the whole thing, right up to the end. If it doesn't strike you as particularly correct, well, you could blame me for wasting your time, or you could blame Kev where I found it :)
