Plussing It

In the recent Quarrel progress report, I used the term ‘plussing it’. It may not be familiar to you, though I’m sure you got the gist of it.

This is a term that we’ve… purloined from Walt Disney. To ‘plus’ something means to push it that little bit more, no matter how well you think you nailed it. And it can be applied to anything. It gave Disney animations the edge way back when, and Pixar (a company heavily influenced by Disney) believe strongly in the concept of plussing their work.

The concept of focussing on the small details is something we do as a matter of course, but it’s nice to have a catchier label to use.
