comment What is the definition of “technical debt”?
To expand on this a bit... The idea is that we can "pay a little now" to design it properly, or "pay more later" to retro-actively fix it (since changing code is generally easier in the design phase than in the support phase). Thus, much like credit debt, it does accrue interest. In the end, more is paid to get something done quickly (like buying something before one can afford it with credit.)
