When everyone is screaming it is hard to hear a quiet voice.

Be aware of the difference between doing things in stages and doing them piecemeal.

That reminds me of one of my favorite heuristics - "on purpose," as in "It looks like it was designed on purpose."

And ironically, I came here because I was frustrated trying to find something in an image library that was built piecemeal, with no rhyme or reason, rather than in stages. It's a momentary time savings for the people who file images randomly (as it appears to me anyway), but a colossal waste of time for everyone trying to find an image, including the original random filer.

Power doesn't always corrupt. Power always reveals. When you have enough power to do what you always wanted to do, then you see what the guy always wanted to do.
