Tales from the Cube: Drawing out a Solution


Tales from the Cube: Drawing out a Solution - RF CafeThis is clearly one of the best installments of EDN's Tales from the Cube series that I remember reading. The anecdote told has everything a good story needs - a catchy introductory paragraph ("Having trouble?" my boss asked, looking over my shoulder. I wanted to say, "No, my design is failing exactly the way I intended."), a body that retains the reader's interest and builds an anticipation for the conclusion (a crescendo, so-to-speak), and then delivers on the promise with an ending that utterly gives closure and justifies your attention and time. You finish being glad you read it. My junior year college creative writing professor would surely have given writer Steve Lubs an A+ for his 500[+73]-word essay. The story has a moral lesson to boot!
