Aardvark Joel on Software Video

A while back I ordered a video called Aardvark'd. It was supposed to be better than The Apprentice, and actually show the management process. According to Joel, anyway. I thought this would be good to show during my project management or software development class.

When I first got the video, I got bored in the first 5 minutes, and thought I'd watch it later. Well, a couple years later, it is now later. It is still boring. And frustrating. I don't want a tour of the intern's appartment. I certainly don't want to spend so much time watching the kids try to figure if they could jump out the window of their building to a nearby building.

I'm a half hour into the film, and now they are trying to plan a party. They aren't social enough apparently. I haven't seen them do any work yet. I think my time might be better spent finding a different video, and give this up as a waste of money and time. Shame, most of Joel's stuff is really good.
