This idea of drag does sound cool, and it makes sense intuitively...

The only similar things I know of are the idea of technical debt, and the agile estimation game where you give exponentially more points to bigger tasks (according to the Fibonacci sequence).

I wrote a rant about the friction of big codebases a while back: The Software Crappiness Factor (somewhat related)

Anyway, I think you're right. Something worth chasing up. Looking forward to hearing more about it!

Enjoyed your talk at the conference, too. If you want to get in touch with Christian you can mail him here cnutt at cmp dot com. He usually does good stuff. (Interviewed me on Mon for our UT3 announcement.)

Looking forward to Schizoid!
