Paul Graham's new article
- Paul Graham differentiates among the American "quick and dirty" approach
to product design and the Japanese obsession with excellent design.
I wonder where we, as Israelis, stand in this classification.
My guess is that the Israeli way is to use temporary solutions, which
somehow become permanent with warts.
Another characteristic which I ascribe to the Israeli way of doing
things is the traditional Israeli approach of doing things with
absolutely the minimum quantity of frills, because the budget has been
laughingly small. However, in recent years, there is enough money to do
some extras once in a while.
