As the code written today becomes part of tomorrow's inexorably growing pile of legacy, preserving these stories becomes increasingly important. It's costly to rely on informal storytelling to preserve and communicate important decisions; it's incredibly costly to try to recreate those decisions and their rationale when the storytellers themselves are gone. Insofar as a software development organization can codify its tribal memory and keep its decisions alive, it can make evolving that system materially easier.
