Have you seen Tim Bray’s “Getting Through the Tough Times” video?

By now, many of us have possibly met our saturation point on the topic of weathering the economic storm, but if you have room for one more perspective, this one is worth a look.

It’s not all gloom and doom, but is a solid perspective with some practical ideas that individuals and companies (of various sizes) can do to find stability and perhaps prosperity in the current economic climate.

Tim has a few blog posts on the topic in case you are interested in joining the conversation.

    I think the key things to take away were:
    1) If you’re a start-up, make something that you find useful yourself
    2) Don’t get religious about languages – they’re all useful and popular
    3) Cap-ex is out. Waterfall models are dead. Be agile. Release early/often.
    Interesting stuff. Personally I believe he’s overly pessimistic and there’s a big rebound coming in Dec/Jan/Feb, but his points are valid either way.
