​In my humble opinion peoples are entitled to their own opinions. On the
same line people are entitled to heir own metrics of success. If you think
his metric of succes is not up to your metric of reasonablilty we are
slowly drifting in to a "he said, she said" or "Er hat aber angefangen"
​ according to my metrics.
I will definitly take a look at​ "Why Software Jewels Are Rare" and the
"Festschrift" if somebody else happens to have pointers throw them at me.

Thanks for the kind welcome.
