At Tejon Tech, we have a Trello list of ideas and sayings that express who we are and who we want to be. It's our fluid culture statement. One of the saying is, "No one is a Vulcan".
It means that, unlike Spock, we all make little mistakes. Maybe I run the build scripts in the wrong order and have to run them again; Or, I forget to post the location of the feature's mockup when I add the feature to Trello. We all make these minor oversights sometimes. We don't want to, but we do.
The philosophy of "No one is a Vulcan" acknowledges these errors and includes the idea that we just fix them and move on. We don't agonize over them, beat ourselves up, or blame someone for an minor error.
There is the idea that the devil is in the details, or that the little things add up to overall quality. We're not disagreeing with those concepts. We're saying that we fix the errors right away and keep moving, and that let's us focus on the big issues, the architecture, the complex queries, without letting the minutia generate issue between people - because we're only human. We're not Spock.
