If You Want it Done Right, Get Someone Else to Do It
Worrying about the cost or effort of sending non-core work outside? Mike Evangelist comments,
As the engineering team worked feverishly getting DVD Studio Pro version 1 (known at the time as Popeil) ready for release, I worked with the documentation department to create a tutorial to be included in the manual. It would include sample movies and graphics, along with complete instructions for recreating the sample project.
This was to be the first of many lessons about how Apple puts quality first. I was accustomed, from years of working for clients with small budgets, to doing things 'on a shoestring'. This often meant literally doing things myself. Whether it was shooting video for a demo or designing a print ad, it was usually me and my Mac that made it happen. I'd been doing things this way for so long that I often didn't even realize I was doing it, but Phil Schiller (who had to approve any samples that were to be shipped with a product) set me straight.
Go toto see the ramifications of doing it yourself or doing it right.
