comment Is rotating the lead developer a good or bad idea?
I don't think you necessarily want to rotate EVERY dev into the team lead position, but I would expect a senior dev to be able to handle those responsibilities. Frankly, it's a thankless job, and it's more a case of sharing the burden and avoiding burning out one individual. I also think it'll help keep the advantages of your flat org team dynamic in tact to not have one dev as the permanent lead.

comment I believe my solution is better than my boss's, so should I ignore him?
Agree 100% with Stargazer712. Successful organizations are those in which the individual team members maximize their unique talents through team contribution. That begins by checking your ego at the door. I wouldn't want to work below you, above you, or next to you Mr. Murph, irrespective of your self-perceived uber skills.

comment What happens if you're unable to solve a problem?
As far as the second point - be careful about spending too much time on trial and error. Hacking has its place of course, but understanding the problem better is much more time efficient than lots of hacking.

Huh, yeah I only thought of node as for network apps as they are clear from their homepage on out that that's what it's for.
