In contemporary business and science, a project is an individual or collaborative enterprise, possibly involving research or design, that is carefully plan, usually by the project assigned team, to achieve a particular aim.
One can also define a project as a set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period and within certain cost and other limitations.
One can view projects as temporary (rather than permanent) social systems or as work systems that are constituted by teams within or across organizations to accomplish particular tasks under time constraints. An ongoing project is usually called (or evolves into) a program.

    M1 Destroyer Carbine Magazines, et al.

    So, I recently acquired a Spanish Destroyer Carbine. It is one of the rare variants (M1) made in the early 1960s that is chambered in 9×19㎜ Luger, rather than 9×23㎜ Largo (aka Bergmann—Bayard). The rifle should be, according to tracking, here on Monday, and I'll add pics to the appropriate...

    The Leibowitz Project

    So, this evening, the family cavorted outside. The rather sexy wife put together a hammock for yours-truly (my first ever) and the little Potatoes flitted about. As the smaller people engaged in said, I thumbed through a classic — Life After Doomsday* (1980) by Dr. Bruce Clayton. It is...

    Final project: Free speech and social media

    My son (a good MAGA hat wearing, gun-toting high school senior) is writing his final paper of his high school career. He selected the topic: “Free speech and social media: do social media platforms have an obligation to limit hate speech and false information?” It’s easy to say yes, but then...
