/by apr/ I work with Andy in several projects and I have to tell you, he's the most detail-oriented person I've ever met. He's the kind of guy that enjoy details, gets excited reading and writting specs and I don't know how, but he seems to memorize all of them. He is a voracious spec reader® that can pinpoint potential issues in specs from major institutions --that went through multiple internal revisions-- at first sight, and he writes amazingly detailed specs for even the simplest task. During development, when we ask for some piece of information, his invariable answer (even from Blackberry) is: 'look at page xxx of my spec' (we have a roadmap spec that includes pointers to all other involved specs, he calls that the 'master project workbook' where we can find literally everything related to a given project). Andy has a blog now, and interesting enough, his blog has an specs section that I'm sure readers of this blog will find very useful. I highly recommend that you add his feed to your agregator.
