Democracy doesn’t work

Just had one of those days when I would have been just as productive if I’d waited until the end of the day to parachute in with final comments, instead of being involved all the way through. Enormously frustrating to think how many hours of my finite life I have wasted.

That’s the problem with trying to write something by committee. It never works yet for some reason people persist in indulging the myth of ‘involving stakeholders’. In my experience, democracy doesn’t work when it comes to writing; benign dictatorship is the only way to get good content with anything approaching efficiency.
