Four Leaf Studios, how does it work?

I think it's just too old, too tangled and too intricate to really understand. In theory, it should not work at all
<Aura> would you squeeze a warm PVC bottle between your thighs and call it "manaka-chan"
<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

4LS consists of unpaired electrons, but sometimes creativity can cause them to align in the same direction.

Good description of the team dynamics. It's very hard to capture the feel of something like this in a dry technical discussion, particularly in short form and without personal descriptions. What you need is to write a novel about it, or write it as if you were an outsider, looking in. This is hard to do. There's an old book, Soul of a New Machine, by Tracy Kidder, about a team developing a new computer, that is probably the best non-fic example. You could capture the feel the same way, except that you'd have to expand each of your paragraphs into a chapter.

BTW one of the things Kidder talks about that you don't mention is signing up, where someone agrees to take on a specific part of the job. The team leader's task was very often to go around and talk the developers into signing up for a specific part of the project. I'd be interested to hear if 4LS has any of that sort of dynamic (given that there's no official team leader).

There are no words to describe how this makes me feel.

It scares me how alike this is to a marketing project.

It made me laugh. Sounded rather random in the middle of that wall of text.

That sounds so romantic somehow~

Not really.

Aura-kun! You have heterochromia or you just joking?




And, uh... that mentioning of Hisao's penis probably blew out the minds of many fans. I'm still trying to find a few parts of a little nut that's supposed to be my brain around here.

Indeed, now everyone is thinking of Hisao's penis.
