manual until it hurts is an indieweb principle of resisting automation until you have done it enough times to really understand it, and know that it is worth doing.


Tantek Çelik proposes this rough equation: manual as long as the cost to doing so has a greater benefit than the reduced cost of doing it automatically minus the cost of setting up / maintaining automation.
