comment Does Object Oriented Programming Really Model The Real World?
I think your last point captures intangible relationships. Sometimes the objects exist in the real world, we just don't see them.

Great succinct answer. By definition you lose some details in the model.

comment If competition is using 'lingua obscura' for development (why) should I be worried?
Both true. It's a numbers game. But take the extreme opposite. Sometimes outliers explode. Sometimes they succeed. But would you ever fear a competitor coming after you with COBOL?

comment How can I quantify the amount of technical debt that exists in a project?
@ErikDietrich - I agree. And the worse serial offenders don't even know they're adding to their debt. (Similar to the worst credit card offenders crushing their credit ratings.) But the starting point assumes the desire to quantify, and it's hard for the non-writer to quantify it. You don't know where the poop is unless it's your dog, or you happened to step in it.
