A brainstorming session this afternoon around a bunch of new features we've been pouring in for the retail-front-end modules of Visual Net. More or less the whole company either in the room or on the phone. Progress was made, in a National League rather than American League sort of way.

Most times, in software, you don't hit home runs and achieve dramatic leaps forward. You make a little change, push your runner to the next base, and then re-evaluate everything based on the new situation. Our product - any product - represents a large accretion of decisions and opinions and engineering choices, and most of the steps we take forward are small ones. That's just the way software is.
