[draft] Estimation is guesswork.

Estimation (in software development circles) is neither an art nor a science - it's guesswork. And yet we continue to perpetuate the myth that it's possible to predict how long something will take to build.

I have a post in me about the 'immutablility of developers' and their inability to change the rate at which they work, a fact of life that very few project managers seems to have grasped.

This is just a placeholder (note to self to write it!)
