Oh, wait. That's from another project, he he.

This project is entering an inflection point where the complexity increases exponentially and the tasks polyfurcate which necessitates strict planning and task management to avoid total feature collapse and morale sublimation.

In simple words, this is the moment where most self-driven DIY projects die.

Unless the projector is aware of the projected phænomeni, able to jump over the forks, keep track and overcome the myriad of small decisions and inter-connected project events which in a normal project are handled by a large team of project manager, focus group, feature designer, hardware expert, radio engineer, software designer and industrial design and manufacturing liaison, as well as supply chain coordinator, sometimes more than one... well.

Unless managed, this will turn into a quagmire of endless mistakes and re-iterations, and we must be cognizant of the lattice decision making and ladder-iterative waterfall design process; or else.

In plain words, we are a one-man orchestra carefully playing all instruments at once. Better not trip!
