idealists versus pragmatists

[ #35936 ]

From Joel Spolsky:

As usual, the idealists are 100% right in principle and, as usual, the pragmatists are right in practice.

I wouldn't say 100%... :) but it's an interesting article, especially in light of some of the discussion about the Module::Install deprecations.

  • That kind of depends whether you consider me an idealist or a pragmatist.

    My principle? Design idealistically, implement pragmatically :)
  • Ideally, we expect idealists and pragmatists to agree. But in practice, we find they don't.

    Theory and practice. In theory, they are the same thing. In practice, they are not. --Jan LA van de Snepscheut

    We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -Larry Wall
