Dear Chat Log,

Громпий: I like the grumpy programmer.

Torgo: Me too, as I'm sliding into similar grumpiness. Like with test-driven development -- I like the idea, but I just don't feel like dealing with it as an omnium-gatherum fix-it-all methodology of everything.

Громпий: Software trends are frighteningly similar to trends in education.
New math! Old math! Conversation circles! Back to basics!

Torgo: That is the truest and most horrifying thing I've heard in weeks.
But yeah, like, "EVERYONE GET IN YOUR GROUPS NOW!" = pair programming.
It all makes me want to hiss and recoil behind my cape.

Громпий: The actual job of producting software and/or teaching children continues despite the trends, but it is held back in both cases.
