Another great interview Thanks, Corey. Stuart makes a lot of really interesting and important points throughout. I was even inspired enough to go check out Clojure.I was particularly interested in Stuart's take on 20% time. I was always a little worried that 20% time tends to encourage people to work in an isoalted way, but having the entire company do 20% time at the /same/ time is one way to get both the innovation/creativity flowing and not lose the team-focused environment.
Thanks, James.Yeah, Relevance's take on the 20% time is a great one. I was there for an "Open Source Friday," and it really worked well; everyone was engaged and still working together.
Very cool interview. I like the informalness of these interviews. I have his programming clojure on the shelf waiting to be read after I finish the current book I'm reading.
I like Stuart's take on 20% working on Open Source or investigating new languages/idea.The most dangerous infestion for software developers are "skill-rot".I have read his classic "Component Development for the Java Platform" - though dated, but still a great read for insights.I have Scala on my bookshelf.Now, I will give Clojure a second look.
