I like the idea of the TAO, and the ZEN, the direct
experience of the thing, the inabilty to express in
words, the deepness of the interaction between the
mind and the subject of the thought.    (02)

expressed in the motto of the Dynamo Open Air Festival    (03)

I am involved in the DotGNU pnet compiler development,
and am very impressed with Rhys Weatherby,
he just hack and hacks away. Not too many emails,
ideas, just code, code and more code.    (05)

I like the idea of literate programming, your design
is your doc, your doc is your diagram, your diagram is
your code.     (06)

Code is a message to a compiler, but the compiler is
written by a person, so it is a message to the
compiler writer as to how to translate and deal with
your idea.    (07)

Problem is that you have so many peoples ideas in so

them, ahhhh.. thats what a thunk is, .... How is this
data type used... I see... all these users? 
Graph that in a new window ..
Now who uses them, add a new level to that graph...
All called by this one function!
Who wrote it? Home page? Email?  And what about
messages related to this function? CVS logs on this
line for code? I see only three authors ever changed
it. Let me send them a mail.
