There’s this scene toward the end of some after-school special I saw sometime in the 80′s where the main dude is painting some steps in front of a house and a father-figure person tells the main dude that he’s really going to make a name for himself and be successful because he’s painting the underside of the steps. Something about attention to detail and painting a part of the steps that no one will see, but the main dude will always know he painted them anyway.
I always think of this scene when I’m painting something (like I was this weekend) and I always paint the underside of whatever it is even if no one will see it. Apparently after-school specials have shaped my view of doing a complete job. Somehow this applies to how we do things at Substance as well, though with interactive. (For example, the source code on aretheblazersplaying.com.)
