An anonymous null bit wanders… wanting to infect.

Right?

with one comment

I wonder how do people make commitments to develop a particular technology in 3 years or 5 years. This would be new stuff, right? You cannot plan it in a MS Project sheet, right? A lot of it is unknown, right? Then how does someone make a commitment that their technology will be ready in so and so time.

I presume, as the time approaches nearer, competitors arrive and ensure that timelines are met more or less. Also, I guess the actual developers start putting in insane hours at work… nothing that affects the guy who actually made the commitment, right?

  1. It’s more a planning than a commitment. Moreover, development is not research ; the former has a path, the latter has but an aim. With a path you know the way, which already reduces the margins; with an aim, you know nothing besides a horizon. Research i a way is poetry, while development is a flow of processes. Process is seldom anything but extrapolation, and extrapolation is computable in time.
