(hoping that since Keith used the word, you won't think this is off-topic, which it is...)
Have you guys read the "Manifesto of the Futurist Programmers"?
HOOO-YEAH! Now there's a MANIFESTO! Too bad they're biased against objects... in the "Futurist Programming Notes" (http://www.graficaobscura.com/future/index.html) they have these humorous definitions:
- structured programming = slow
- modular = bloated
- extensible = late
- reusable = buggy
- object-oriented = slow and bloated and late and buggy
I can't blame them too much, thinking of the state of pigs like Eclipse 15 years after they penned their manifesto. But, I have a feeling that they'd sympathize with Ian's COLA.
