Bikeshed [Feb. 6th, 2006|03:15 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I was explaining this to David earlier, but I'd forgotten the proper term:

Why Should I Care What Color the Bikeshed Is?
"The really, really short answer is that you should not. The somewhat longer answer is that just because you are capable of building a bikeshed does not mean you should stop others from building one just because you do not like the color they plan to paint it. This is a metaphor indicating that you need not argue about every little feature just because you know enough to do so. Some people have commented that the amount of noise generated by a change is inversely proportional to the complexity of the change."

You do know why the Bikeshed should never, ever be allowed to be green right? (See also brianfeldman.)
