Programming and art
I have heard many people say that programming is an art. I have thoughts on that statement, but they are truly not that relevant. The following does inspire me to add more art to programming. Lets make programming languages more poetic and make technical specifications and functional specifications more enjoyable reading: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/DeCSS/Gallery/decss-haiku.txt And some background: http://www.loyalty.org/~schoen/haiku.html This has turned into an internet classic, showing the obvious demand for more art in programming :). Next time you need to write code or documentation, write a poem or make a painting. The world will be a better place.
