Aardvark'd: 12 weeks with geeks
Writing about web page http://www.projectaardvark.com/movie/I think I've written something before about Joel Spolsky (I'm a fan), but I'm not sure if I mentioned his summer project; Project Aardvark. Basically he got together 4 interns and a film maker and got them to create a product (FogCreek CoPilot) from start to finish in about 12 weeks. They blogged about the process and also filmed it for a documentary. Well, the movie is more or less finished and should be out in a few weeks. If anyone is interested in what it's like to work in a dotcom start-up in 2005, this is the movie for you.
