"The only source of knowledge is experience." -- Albert Einstein

Building machines since the 1940s, Computer systems since the 1960s,
I now mainly build software that tracks and controls things - 
offices, factories, warehouses, scientific instrument systems - 
using networks that range from offices to nationwide and even worldwide.

Lessons I have learned :

  1. Simpler is better.

  2. Perfect is good enough.


READ:

     —— Instead of giant complex programs with all their headaches,
                    learn about coordinating
small simple programs at Bee Team Software

     —— OR, See real world examples at Control Models


Examples of activity made visible - on the floor AND in the front office:

Factories:                                                                                                                         Warehouses:
