here come the software artists

Apropos of my software-as-music analogy, Jonathan Kohl has another nice non-manufacturing metaphor, software development as theater. It makes a lot of sense, especially since Jonathon's point is actually about the value of improvisation in the course of developing and testing software.

In software, improvisation saves time and creates new opportunities. On the factory floor or in the supply chain, improvisation is a disruption and causes chaos.
