Is Documentation Wasteful?

Day 186.

Show me the working system, not a 10-pounds document!

We must base our milestones on objective evaluation of working systems.

Is documentation now wasteful?

It is wasteful only if it is not useful to anybody!

Be lean… remove wasteful things.

I have had bought iPhones through the years… and I’ve never bothered checking if there were printed documents for me to read! I went straight to using it… discovering things along the way… my objective evaluation and usage is based on the iPhone — the working system! Had apple inserted a printed manual in the box … then it would had been a waste! I’m sure there was tiny little printed material in each box… but, I didn’t need it…it’s a waste!

I used the iPhone … but I did not use the printed tiny manual!
