Worry About Scaling Later? No.
37 Signals' Getting Real is a great book, but one piece of its advice seems dead wrong: worry about scaling only if and when you have to. Consider servers that get slashdotted or boingdotted. Consider startups with explosive viral growth. Traffic spikes on the Web can be gigantic, and completely unpredictable. Companies should plan for that.
