Kreieren durch kombinieren

David Heinemeier Hansson, Creator von Ruby on Rails und CTO von Basecamp:

„[W]hat the vast majority of people in the world should be doing [is] taking things that already exist and putting them together in interesting, slightly twisted, slightly subtly different ways.“

„‚Basecamp‘ is […] to-do lists, and file uploads, and some blogging, and some messaging, and whatever. […] ‚Basecamp‘ invented nothing. ‚Ruby on Rails‘ invented nothing. All the patterns of use that we took … I went shopping in textbooks and […] then I’m gonna put it together nicely.“

„You can create great software, inventing nothing […], [by] just putting things together in novel ways.“
