This is essentially the same as my answer, albeit without the down-votes. :)

@Mehrdad: I can make similar estimates on my projects, assuming I'm reasonably familiar with the platform/language and the problem domain.

In Mao's case, I think motivation came from his habit of never brushing his teeth. A stern talking-to from Mao was definitely something to avoid. :)

I thought "Lake of Planning" was a setting in World of Warcraft?

Amen. I've been waiting for years for the time when I can stop avoiding third-party components like the plague, but it hasn't happened yet.

@MadKeithV: in my experience, it's about a 50-50 blend (of uncaring and unknowing). Personally, I'll take the unknowing over the uncaring - I'm good at teaching, but not good at motivating.

Why do we think software is more 'abstract' than something physical like a car or a bridge? The AMC Pacer and the Pontiac Aztec are examples of design where change was not managed well.

Down-votes to me are like blood to a vampire. More more more! :)

@Mehrdad: agreed. The projects I've seen fail were the result of everybody involved being incompetent, not just one developer.

@Brian: true, but didn't HR hire the HR people? Who is ultimately responsible for poor personnel choices?

I'm going to leave this up and see how many down-votes it gets. It's beyond me why people want to pretend that most programmers are competent.

comment How to recognize a good programmer?
I'm about 6', 185 lbs., shaved head and a goatee. I'm wearing Chuck Taylors and a blue t-shirt over a white thermal. Please down-vote me gently - I did answer the question. :)
