Segnalo un nuovo post sul blog di Steve Yegge: The Pinocchio problem.
E` un articolo interessante e generico, con perle di questo genere:
Even so, I think some software systems are better than others: the producer of the crap in question swallowed some pennies, maybe, so their crap is shiny in places.
The idea behind DWIM is that perfect software is like a grateful djinn in a bottle who is granting you a wish. I'm not talking about those cheap-ass wishes you get from fountains or shooting stars, either. Everyone knows you have to phrase penny-wishes in legalese because the Wish Fairy gives you literally what you asked for, not what you meant. Just like all the software you use.
