Forget Feature Requests

For those that don’t know me, I used to work at a major Macintosh software developer. I was a Quality Assurance Specialist. Part of the position left me in charge of receiving, cataloging, prioritizing and, in part, implementing feature requests. Let me tell you, this alone could have been my full time job. Now was all of this management of these requests really needed? I mean, after all, any of us QA folks could have rattled off any of the most frequent requests at the drop of a hat. Therefore, it is a really bold move to submit the argument that Jason Fried does. He argues that developers should read feature requests and then throw them away. You read that right – Throw them away!
