Interest in a Feature Postmortem Blog

I'm looking to gauge interest in the community for building a feature postmortem blog. I tweeted the idea yesterday and immediately had some people who seemed to like the idea as much as I do.

The goal would be writing in the context of a project about a specific feature you built, what you needed to refactor to make room for it, and what how your previous decisions had helped or made difficult the new work you were doing. How was the work able to be broken down? Did you account for future changes you know you'll make? What work did you intentionally leave for tomorrow or the next developer?

At the heart of this idea is the thought process in my head when I sit down and work on something specific, and wanting to share that process with others and to get the same back to them. I would love to curate a reader submitted collection of these stories.

Is there an interest? Please tell me if you'd like to read this and especially if you'd like to contribute!

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
