“Without commerce, advanced social orders can’t evolve, so we’re stuck in the primitive state where every nerd fabricates everything from first principles.”
Brad Cox, Masterminds of Programming: Conversations with the Creators of Major Programming Languages

Chuck Klosterman
“So if you’ve seen Twelve Monkeys more than twice, you’re probably a Calvinist.”
Chuck Klosterman, Eating the Dinosaur

“We sort of understood abstractly the idea that there are only two kinds of software projects: failures and future legacy horrors.”
Peter Weinberger

“If you look at forces that improved products like socks, sweaters, and Twinkies,the engine that drives that system is economics. It’s economics that breaks down for software so that it remains indefinitely in its present primitive stage of evolution.”
Brad Cox, Masterminds of Programming: Conversations with the Creators of Major Programming Languages

“Components are how people solve problems above a modest scale; it’s one thing that separates us from chimpanzees. We invented a way of solving problems by simply making it the other guy’s problem. It’s called specialization of labor, and it’s as simple as that. That’s how the humans differ from chimpanzees: they never invented that. They know how to make tools, they have a language, so for most of the obvious things there are no differences between chimps and humans. We discovered how to solve problems by making it the other guy’s problem — through an economic system.”
Brad Cox, Masterminds of Programming: Conversations with the Creators of Major Programming Languages
