Have I Written One of the Best Software Essays of 2004?

Over at Joel On Software, Joel is soliciting nominations for the Best Software Essays of 2004.  The chosen essays will be featured in a book.  I would love to see one of my short essays in that book.

Here is what I ask of you – if you believe that either (or both!) of these essays are worthy of being considered among the best software essays of 2004, go to this discussion thread and leave a comment that makes me sound like a genius.

If you think a different one of my pieces deserves to be nominated, go ahead and nominate it.  And if you don’t think any of my work is worthy, well…that’s OK too.  :p
