Erik Sink’s Comments on “Hitting the High Notes”

Eric Sink:

Two months ago, Joel Spolsky published an essay entitled Hitting the High Notes in which he uses the metaphor of vocalists to explain something about software developers… High notes are amazing, but harmony is powerful. I am not disagreeing with Joel’s metaphor. Rather, I like his metaphor so much that I want to finish it. Joel spoke of individual talent in terms of a soloist. I want to speak of team talent in terms of a choir.
