I came across this great cartoon, apparently from 37signals, where two people agree that they want to build a house.
Working for a big company, I see this happen all to often. I think it's a mechanism to reach "agreement" on something rather than nothing at all. Sometimes the initial, high-level, agreement leads to lower-level executable decisions, but often it does not.
I think we should all breathe air, and be nice to eachother; agree?
