This is Charlie O'Keefe. Yes, I worked with everlater in the early stages. No, I did not write "all of their original code base". I give the whole everlater team a lot of credit for how much they learned and how far they've come.

I think "feedback loop" is a great way to sum it up. Looking at the trendy software development methodologies, or broadening even more to include "customer development" ( http://startuplessonslearned.blogspot.com/2008/11... ), the common thread is adding, or tightening, feedback loops.

The waterfall method is the one software people dump on and the reason is simple: no feedback loop.

If google calendar were designed to better suit the specific case of taking orders over the phone and scheduling deliveries, would that make it better software?

The way to judge "better" is probably product-market fit ( http://blog.pmarca.com/2007/06/the-pmarca-gu-2.ht... ). This yardstick applies in both the consumer case and the enterprise case.
