Designing software just through emails ?




Is it possible to design software just through exchanging emails?

The answer apparently is: yes.

Just found this in the book 'NFS Illustrated' by Brent Callaghan, at the beginning of chapter 7 about NFS V3:
Quote:
Engineers from Auspex, Inc., Cray Research, Digital Equipment Corporation, Data General, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Legato, Network Appliance, the Open Software Foundation, and Sun Microsystems formed a mailing list and designed the NFS version 3 protocol cooperatively by e-mail.

I don't see why not. Just attached source code (or sections of code) to email. Respond with comments/changes.
I have done that with project drawings for a long time.

Of course, sharing stuff in the 'cloud' may now be easier.

I think the amazing part is that people collaborate without ever talking to each other face-to-face. Nowadays email and other communication and collaboration tools make that possible, but face-to-face interaction beats them all, because it is our natural way to interact.
In my job I often realize how long a debate is ongoing through email and can be resolved so quickly by just talking to each other.
