When you can not control resourcing and you want a particular thing, it is “done when it’s done”. The question is, how long can you afford to wait for it? And how soon would you like to know that you’ll be waiting too long?

Everything is a trade off but in tech we too strongly prefer our binary, all or nothing. Could be design or automation or …

True and yet I’d kinda prefer the punch - “Okay, feeling better? Could we move on now?” ;)

Whilst a team surrounds a writer (editor, publisher, agent maybe etc), the output is largely a singular effort. Comparing with teams writing software feels a little apples vs oranges?

Substitute statistics for ML and I think it is literally the same so I don't see any difference. The current crisis is defined by science not understanding "fancy" p-values so it seems the same to me.

"try anything, measure everything" is particularly good strategy if the search part of your company is paying the bills for the experiments and hope optimal strategy pops out of a random walk. In the context of bloodletting, not science in general. Science is not A/B testing.
