- Mel Conway (ex-Lightspeed/Think; ex-Wang) Conway's
Law is misquoted in the fortune file; it is not "In any organization there will always be one person
who knows what is going on. This person must be fired." Rather, what Mel wrote in a letter-to-editor of DataMation
back in 1968 was that "the structure of any information system is isomorphic to the structure of the organization
that built it" whether intentionally or not; the communications interfaces of the software will parallel those
of the team, due to the negotiations involved.Ref. Jargon
