Seems like the opposite of the 37 signals way... aren't you supposed to introduce fewer features that are well thought out?

(Not saying that's the only way, but it seems more sensible than building loads of features really quickly without giving much thought to them.. after all, extra features increase the complexity/difficulty of both user experience and maintenance)




Yeah, it's definitely a trade off. I'm not sure I agree with the 37 signals way though.

A good example of my issue with them is their highrise product. It took over a year from launch [1] before they had any type of bulk editing [2] features. Simplicity is one thing, but that is a long time for a feature that really should have been there at launch... or close to it.
