    72. 72. Findings: agile better than monolithic From Facebook’s S-1 filing… “The Hacker Way is an approach to building that involves continuous improvement and iteration. Hackers believe that something can always be better, and that nothing is ever complete. They just have to go fix it — often in the face of people who say it’s impossible or are content with the status quo.” http://techcrunch.com/2012/02/01/facebook-ipo-letter/
    73. 73. Findings: agile better than monolithic “Hackers try to build the best services over the long term by quickly releasing and learning from smaller iterations rather than trying to get everything right all at once.. We have the words “Done is better than perfect” painted on our walls to remind ourselves to always keep shipping…
    74. 74. Findings: agile better than monolithic Instead of debating for days whether a new idea is possible or what the best way to build something is, hackers would rather just prototype something and see what works.”
