"It seemed like a good idea at the time"

During a business trip this week, I had a chance to read a delightful novel by Magnus Mills, The Scheme for Full Employment. While hardly a story about usability, Mills somehow manages to poke fun at many of our field's sacred cows: slavish adherence to process and efficiency, cultish enthusiasm for "design classics," doing things by the book. A wonderful satire.

I love anything mills has written too... and have worked in the "Dig Holes and Fill Them In" dept of the Scheme...
