Politics-Oriented Software Development || kuro5hin.org: "The goal of meetings, as far as the manager is concerned, i s to appear in control and abreast of the project. Your goal is to make sure that they think they are in control and abreast of the project, while keeping all details from them. Most managers will happily collude in this, since they have no desire to know what ishappening, so long as they are seen to be so aware and are rigorously kept blissfully ignorant of their own ignorance. Remember that managers are essentially secretaries who can fire you."
