Why specs matter [dive into mark]

Mark Pilgrim on why specs matter - all developers are either Assholes or Morons. There are no Angels. Me, I try to fall into the expert-in-training Moron camp.

Not sure whether the Moron/Asshole axis fits in with Tom Coates' Ninja/Pirate Dwarf/Elf graph. If it does, then it opens up the possibility of being a moron pirate elf, which would be better than an asshole ninja dwarf, I think.

Corollary: there are no angel ninja pirates. Thank goodness for that.
