Although it is true that February is ancient history in blog time, I see no reason why we should just leave what we have written down stuck in the past. It doesn't happen every often because who has the time to browse through past entries, right? Still, I congratulate you. Blog entries are still blog entries. They still contain personal truth and wisdom in them.

>It got picked here somehow..hacker news or something

Yes, it is news for programmers. As a programmer, I can say that your comments on

"argue as if you are right and listen as if you are wrong"


"wisdom being the courage to act on what you know now and the humility to change course later"

are incredibly important (but too often overlooked) in our field. The really tricky stuff in our field is about people, not the technology.
