Various interpretation of the difference between initial builders and maintainers.
|| || initial builders || maintainers || Comment ||
|| theory 2 (GeneralistsVsSpecialists) || brilliant, mercurial, fast learners, easily bored, focused on innovation not execution || focused on detail, execution || ||
|| compare ThomasKuhn || revolutionary science || normal science || ||
|| SebPaquet suggests its about professionals and amateur / dilettantes || Amateurs (See the amazing MacOs GraphingCalculator story today) || Professional || Sounds right, although I wonder how much cause vs. symptom being an amateur is. Not being payed can definitely lead to freedom to do things which aren't commercially viable, but some of these initial builders are payed. More TheAgeOfAmateurs ||
any more suggestions?
