TFTD: Reinvent the Wheel

Thought of the day: Iteration over an idea is, in effect, reinventing the wheel in an effort to create a better wheel.  This is why I cringe every time i hear, “we don’t want to reinvent the wheel.”  I believe it is a phrase which sounds good on the surface while basically pandering to the apathetic and those afraid of change.  I learn much by reinventing wheels.
