True Story - Proof of Horstman's 2nd Law
Imagine for a moment that you are an IT expert. You work for one of the largest technology companies in the world, in the part of the firm where IT is THE place to be.
Imagine further that, glory of glories, you are working on one of the coolest new products to be introduced to the world in the last 20 years. You're on the team partnering with another cutting edge technology company, known for great products and loyal fans.
And imagine that the communication is so bad that you and your associates are reduced to Google-ing your partner firm to find out what the latest news is about your project....because they never return calls, or answer emails.
