Ten Things I Love About Versioning

I love the way it tracks all changes, and who made what edits and where.

I love the way it’s automated, so you don’t have to care!

I love its long-term history and how it never forgets.

I love it so diligently keeping track of all digital document debts.

I love how you can compare versions side-by-side and how easy it is to restore.

I love that with a few clicks of the button, an errant set of edits is no more.*

I love it when colleagues add their notes and specify their changes,

But mostly I love that there’s only ever one file – no “final” or “final-final” – no endlessly emailed exchanges.

*Except it is! Because even versions restored over are retained in versioning history.
