The Joy Of 70-Hour Work Week

No, there is no joy in working 70-hour weeks.

And why are large software projects still managed through spreadsheets and email?

Apropos of nothing, I heard just one song from Spoon's new album "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" and it rocked. Pitchfork loves it too.

Spreadsheets? You're serious?

And don't you use revision control systems? In the free software world there's the venerable CVS, subversion, monotone, git (written by Linus Torvalds to manage the Linux kernel, one of the largest software projects around). In the proprietary world there are bitkeeper, perforce, ... I assumed there's some market for them in the proprietary world.

Rahul: that would be the world of software product development, where most things run on version control. I belong to the dark side -Corporate/business apps - where spreadsheets are the rule.
