Everyone wants a Battlestar Galactica.

I was reading an article on The Making of the U.S. Military’s New Stealth Bomber and this quote from Colonel Tim Spaulding stuck with me:

“Everyone wants a Battlestar Galactica, packed with the latest technology,” he says, driving between buildings at Plant 42. “We have to get the first airplanes out there and going, before we’re ready to make them better.”

How true is that for … everything? Striving for perfection can be crippling, so get out what you have and improve on it later.

If that’s fine for the world’s most advanced jet, it’s fine for a website too.
