Superdistribution and the Economics of Bits
January/February 1997 (vol. 14 no. 1)
pp. 22-24

How to get people and technology to work together.

For many years I've struggled to understand a basic question in our business: why is the engineering and distribution of software fundamentally different from the engineering and distribution of other engineered objects? Brad Cox presents a unique answer to this questionan answer that could lead to a fundamental change in the way that software professionals view their creations and software marketers sell them.

Roger Pressman

...as we look to the horizon of a decade hence, we see no silver bullet. There is no single development, in either technology or in management technique, that by itself promises even one order-of-magnitude improvement in productivity, in reliability, in simplicity.

Fred Brooks
