the porous city

Agile
Given what we know about software timeline estimation, "sprint" is a pretty bad rhetorical frame to use on the reg, right? Maybe it should be "a nice jog followed by dinner with your family". Then half the time it'll end up being a sprint anyway.

I wonder if there's ever been a software company that said "you know what, we're going to do everything slowly. 100% stop and smell the roses pace." But did a good job at what they did do.
