I need some time to think about this.

Here's one good reason for the you-know-what problem: fast talking beats correct "gut feelings" in meetings.

But your gut feeling is likely to be right, and it's good to "soak" and think about stuff.

So, do projects that use "offline" interaction, and collaboration tools that facilitate time delays, do better than meeting-centric ones? Is that a reason why open source projects are managing better than corporate development projects?
