Hackers and Painters
This has got to be one of the best essays I've read in a while. He says a lot of stuff that justifies my thoughts of the last decade or two. If all people understood it how he does, the computing world would be a better place.
This is an excellent article, and I'm sure a stunning speech. The connection of "hacking" and "painting" is thorough and correct: there as much creativity in programming as in painting.
Thanks, Troy, for finding this article! A great read.
