When we accept this idea, we have the freedom to embrace failure and to release imperfect versions. This gives us the freedom to iterate like crazy - not only do we learn a ton about the problem space, we also grow our skills along the way.

Any device that...

This might change in the near future with the introduction of CPU accessible, byte addressable, persistent memory. How would your logging service, database or filesystem look in this world? Actually, would you need any of those or could a persistent C++ STL container be your storage service of...
