Don’t hit the business growth accelerator just yet Joel!

Yesterday, Joel Spolsky posted an article about why growing steadily but slowly might not be such a good idea.

When I read it, I had my reservations about it, but I couldn’t express them … the whole idea just sounded wrong?

Well, the guys over at 37Signals issued a rebuttal of Mr Spolsky’s argument, and I have to say … I agree.

The main thing that drives the use of software like Fogz bugz (a bug tracking web application), is how good it is, and how much buzz it generates. The size of your company doesn’t matter if people that matter (developers in this case) are talking about the other guy’s software on twitter, facebook, digg or reddit, and recommending it to every other developer they can find.

Just my 2 cents.
