Calling "Adaptive design for weblog software" "a great chewy chunk of stuff", Matt Jones comments, "Welcome to the New Cambrian.". Well, thanks, Matt!

"The spectrum of software development has two ends. On one end is the push model (yes, I'm going to lapse into the push/pull dichotomy again), which is the model where you set your sights on a goal, and build a tower to get there (like Windows). On the other end is the pull model, which is more like an ecology. Tiny steps, filling niches, each new piece of development just taking advantage of what's already there, and creating new capabilities -- like, life creates conditions conducive to life, in everything that it does . But it's undirected, not goal oriented, and slow. It can't be forced. "
