Recognizing and accepting what we don't know about professional software production


What if there are claims we cannot evaluate nowadays because there is no way to prove if they are correct or not?


What if is hard to distinguish between mainstream ideas that everyone like from what really work in practice?


 What if orthodoxy is used as a weapon to oppose disagreement and dissent in support of someone authoritativeness?


What if for some problems we have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them?


What if we recognize and accept what we really known about professional software production and what we do not?

Not hate it when you may spend time carving the perfect pumpkin, and then own it wilt and decay after having a few days? All things considered, you almost certainly don't want your Hillary Clinton pumpkin to carefully turn into a Donald Trump.
