comment Where do you get new software ideas from?
@Pagotti - I totally agree, but for me it's worth getting an idea to that point and then letting it sit for a while. Often I'll find that a newer idea helps me make that transition, or maybe it'll get worked into another idea. Or maybe it'll die, but I'll have new ones to work on.

And to clarify the colors better: Black is for things that I know are correct. Usually simple things that there's not really any other scheme that makes sense. Blue is for things that I may decide to restructure slightly. Things that are probably right, but I may erase. Green is for things where I'm really brainstorming and I'm pretty likely to erase.

That's exactly what I was trying to get across. Build what you need, nothing more. But if you don't plan for expansion later, well, have you ever been in rush hour traffic in the bay area? That's a perfect example of what happens when you don't think ahead to how you might need to expand.
