2019-09-04 03:09:00 @gwenshap We had a phrase for it: “the right way, the wrong way, and the MIT way.” The MIT way is like the right way, but ten years ahead of its time and weird. The trick is deciding when to give up on the MIT way and switch to the right way. We may have stolen this meme from NASA.
