Q: I know that was kind of tragic humor a little bit, but there is a kind of serious point there. Do you find that the kind of points you were making—you know the negative sides of software development—apply to younger programmers more than they do to people who are a bit more seasoned in the field?

A: Actually I find the inverse. [...] Frankly we found that the less qualified and the less trained they were, the less we had to un-learn from them, the less of the assumptions we had to take away. They were actually more willing, more humble, and just more open to trying to learn new things.
