A software manager, a hardware manager, and a marketing manager are driving to a meeting when a tyre blows. They get out of the car and look at the problem. The software manager says, “I can’t do anything about this – it’s a hardware problem.” The hardware manager says, “Maybe if we turned the car off and on again, it would fix itself.” The marketing manager says, “Hey, 75% of it is working – let’s ship it!”
The great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.
Standards are like toothbrushes – everyone has one but nobody wants to use anyone else’s.
