General Development This series is aimed at programming language aficionados. There's a lot of very abstract writing about programming languages and a lot of simple minded "language X sux!" style blog posts by people who know next to nothing about programming. What I feel is sorely missing is a kind of article that deliberately sacrifices the last 10% of precision that make the theoretical articles dry and long winded but still makes a point and discusses the various trade offs involved. This series is meant to fill that void and hopefully start a lot of discussions that are more enlightening than the articles themselves. I will point out some parallels in different parts of computing that I haven't seen mentioned as well as analyze some well known rules of thumb and link to interesting blogs and articles.

What the heck?

I might as well post an article about black holes on physicsnews.com, why not? I don't fully understand it, I don't fully understand the topic and I can't even explain myself or add anything to it, but that didn't stop this article from being published, did that...

It's articles like this that make me look for better news sources.
