Much ado about scripting, Linux & Eclipse: card subject to change


Just enough process

This entrace to a forested area in my neighbourhood used to be blocked by a fence with a chained gap wide enough to barely permit clearance for a bike, requiring me to duck to get through.

Recently, it was replaced with just enough of a barrier to prevent cars from getting in, without disrupting the flow or pedestrians, dogs, and cyclists.

Sometimes a whole new approach can vastly improve how a community can gain access to resources.

Great analogy Nick. Processes that just blend in with the usual expected activities are ideal. A fallen log altered to be less restrictive, what a great idea for a barrier that looks inviting, except to a car.
