"WET stands for “write everything twice”. The Rule Of Three is an alternative that says you should even wait until you’ve written something three times before breaking it out."

@nihilipster The idea of local maxima in software design, and most creative projects really, is a useful one. I usually end up rewriting stuff at least once before it's good enough to be something I can improve incrementally. If I did that prematurely, I'd end up at a local maximum but a pretty low one.
