Just Push The Button!

The solution is always just one gesture away.

Actually. Reading Billo’s rant reminds me how much fun it is to rant.

I used to have a coworker who specialized in ranting about the word “just”. He’d try to get people to stop using it. Somebody would say: “Just put it in a database.” or “Just schedule a meeting.” or “Just tell Sam to do it.” and he would be off and running. “Don’t use that word!”

I’m comming to feel the same way about “light weight” as in “Light weight scripting language.” “Light weight data store.” “Light weight presentation layer.”

Don’t do that!
