Avi Bryant: "Recently, I've started paying much closer attention to the "other half" of software development: the small applications built (or half-built) by users, not developers, in small businesses or small departments; the specialized timesheets, customer databases, todo lists, shift schedules, project charts, contact lists, issue trackers; the millions of one-off tools for managing highly specific data for a highly specific market, evolved in place by the people who use them. These are the applications that consultants never see, because even one day of a consultant’s time would be more than the application was worth or the company could afford. Joe Kraus calls this the long tail of software, Clay Shirky calls such software situated, but most people at most companies just call it Excel."
Shouldn’t be spreadsheets
