Modular-related quotes

Thought I’d share a quote I came across while reading “Hackers - Heroes of the Computer Revolution” by Steven Levy. Although the quote is about a time sharing program for the PDP-6 (late 60’s early 70’s), I found it inspiring for module design as well:

Features are less likely to turn out to be of low utility if users are their designers, and they are less likely to be difficult to use if their designers are their users. – Don Eastlake


It’s a shame that generalists and multi-discipline workers are selected against so often. They tend to be the “bridge builders” between two or more worlds.
