Question the norm in the dev team

 Apologies but it's a bit pompous of me using Einstein in the same post as my work, but here goes.

"Concepts that have proven useful in ordering things easily achieve such authority over us that we forget their earthly origins and accept them as unalterable givens." - Albert Einstein. 

It seems to me that software development generates a lot of acronyms and methods all providing the definitive in wisdom. As you get longer in the tooth you get cynical and question these saviours. Einstein was on a totally different level of course but the principle is worth thinking about in the development team.
