The Hypercritical Way

David Smith, developer of Check the Weather (via Clark Goble):

Firstly, nothing is ever good enough to evade critique. In fact the best things, the things we think are the closest to perfect often deserve and benefit from the strongest analysis. No computer will ever be fast enough, no program well designed enough, no device ever shaped well enough to not warrant a detailed look. This critique is often a sign of respect and affection for something. Often I had a higher degree of appreciation for the things in my life discussed on the show after hearing John take them apart and describe how they could be better.
