Given Enough Eyeballs, Are Features Shallow Too?

Clay Shirky: Given Enough Eyeballs, Are Features Shallow Too?

This is exactly what I’m doing with the For Developers section on my company web site: Do some of the up-front conceptualization and design, and hope that someone stops by to either implement it themselves, or pay us to implement it for them. So far it’s worked out pretty well.

An important point is also that things don’t always get implemented the way I had in mind. And that’s totally fine. When someone else implements it, that other developer will usually have some really good ideas of his own, and the end result is better than either of us could’ve done on our own. That’s the beauty of working together and learning together.
