Adding people to a late project makes it later.[edit]

Brooks made this statement in "The Mythical Man Month" and since then it's been known as "Brooks' Law". I think it's noteworthy - but would it be mentioned here or under "The Mythical Man-Month"?

Briefly here (1-2 sentences), and at more length in the book's article. Stan 12:02, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

The entry here states that Brooks founded the Department of Computer Science and UNC in 1965. But his bio on the UNC website says it was 1964: http://www.cs.unc.edu/People/Faculty/Bios/brooks.html. But perhaps it is a typo, because in the same article it says that he left IBM in 1965. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.136.231.46 (talk) 05:13, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
