[REBOL] Re: Hitting the learning curve

From: amicom:sonic at: 6-Nov-2003 10:17

Max, I also miss those days. It was quite a blessing to be able to take hard questions, try to figure out the answer myself, and if I really needed to I could walk into Carl's office (if his door was open) or one of the other developers and get a definitive answer. Sometimes, the question was a pivotal point so Carl would think about it for a while (and he really put thought into all the issues) and sometimes he would call a development meeting to get others' opinions on which direction to take Rebol. I was also very impressed to see how in-depth Carl thought about something before implementing it. I never sensed that he coded "off the cuff", but only after extensive mental deliberation weighing all the pros and cons and keeping an eye on the future. Rebol is an amazing piece of work. I agree that the main ingredient missing now is communication from the top. I have a potential solution. I'll see if I can set up a meeting with Carl to discuss it. It will benefit both the Rebol community and RT itself. Stay tuned. Bohdan "Bo" Lechnowsky Lechnowsky Technical Consulting At 10:22 AM 11/6/03 -0500, you wrote:
