Finishing Projects, Part 2

Posted by matijs 18/08/2004 at 22h50

Simon Cozens, author of the very software this blog runs on, mentions finishing projects in passing:

Maybe I need to stop coming up with interesting new project ideas, and finish some of the ones I've started.

Nah. Where's the fun in that?

How true. And how annoying that old projects stop being fun before they are truly finished. Somehow, they either linger in a mildly usable state (usable enough for me to use them, not for others), or in a half-finished and unused state, bit-rotting away. This is why I consider so few of my projects fit for publication on my website.
