Paul Graham has some good advice

His royal highness got around to addressing all the people saying nasty things about arc.

Sarcasm aside, I like this paragraph a lot, where he explains his design method:

Here it is: I like to find (a) simple solutions (b) to overlooked problems (c) that actually need to be solved, and (d) deliver them as informally as possible, (e) starting with a very crude version 1, then (f) iterating rapidly.

This articulates a bunch of fuzzy ideas I’ve been wrestling with myself.
