Why is Joel so articulate and *more right* in his insights about software development and the people that composes it? In his recent writing entitled “A Field Guide to Developers“, he discussed topics about what attracts *great* developers.
Also in one of the forums there, one question asks why you visit Joel on Software. I think my answer would be because I seem to reverberate with that of Joel Spolsky’s beliefs, not beliefs I believe he originates, but one of those things I love to call “essential and right things generally not yet eloquently expressed, but felt and longed by the heart.”
Don’t you think this *value for the people* is a winning strategy for any organization?
