"Well, what kind of quality "stuff" do you use?" Again, he senses that
someone is trying to box him in, so he replies: "the stuff that works." His
only fear is that someday, someone will refer to what he does as the TSTW
It's already happened. We euphemistically call our toolset of the moment
"stuff that works" and we keep adding and subtracting items that are
working more or less well. We did it precisely to escape the
pigeon-holing that concerned your colleague. Sure enough, a couple of
clients now call it "STW" increasingly less in jest. Labels are indeed
hard to avoid.
