I hope Fog Creek succeeds hugely...

... because growing from a small company to a bigger company is a huge test for anyone, and hence a good test for Joel's philosophies.

Suddenly you can't turn around and talk to your team, there are instead 8 buildings with dozens of people in each, some working in languages you don't understand, dozens of people just managing finance and staff, a legion of end-user support staff...

Best theory I've had so far is that you (or your products) get bought out by a big company that's already figured all that stuff out - or at least, if they haven't, they still pay you great widges of money :)

Good luck Joel ;-)
