Joel on Software

It's been a while since I've written anything and so it's strange that I would dip back into the water on a topic like this but within the span of a week I've decided that I'm over Joel Spolsky.

First I think he's starting to recycle content (like his latest Finding Great Developers). If it's NOT recycled it feels like it. So at a minimum he's no longer saying things that I don't already know. Then last week there was the whole Language Wars rant (and the answer from DHH). I don't really even know what to say about that except "did someone pay him to say that stuff?"

So thanks for the insights over the past 6 years, but Joel, I'm afraid that you've Jumped the Shark.

  1. yeah he has stagnated. The anti ruby thing tho did me in. I love ruby so I'm a little biased but that article was just... off... anyway.
