Don't go straight down - curve and bend

When you drill an oil well, you don't go straight down, you curve and bend - maybe later when you find the reservoir, you will go straight down, but not during exploration.

Richard P. Gabriel's Patterns of Software book is now on-line (as a PDF noted in many Internet locations already). My favorite parts are in the autobiography.
