Always. Be. Shipping. A lesson from Jacopo da Pontormo, circa 1545. – garry’s posterous.

The frescoes were visual equivalents of the effects of isolation on the human mind: a loss of proportion, an obsession with detail combined with an inability to see the larger picture, a kind of extravagant ugliness that no longer communicates… Artists who hole themselves up in their fortress lose a sense of proportion, their work communicating only to their small circle. Such art remains cornered and powerless. 

An interesting analogy to open source, always ship & share…
