The role of catastrophic failure in software design

Everyone knows success is boring! Anyone can succeed, and they won't shut up about it after they do. Happy families are all alike, as the saying goes. Let Michael and Jeff take you on a grand tour of what really matters in software development: failure. Take a glorious, life affirming tour through the various ways they've failed at building major software projects, from Stack Overflow to Fast Company, from Discourse to Inc Magazine. You too, can fail spectacularly, and look good doing it.
