  • The tutorial sounds exciting, but the title lacks the shock of recognition of 'food + heat = cooking' and 'wetware'.

    If we make something of the idea of it being a form of 'engineering' and at the same time sneer at engineers, what about, 'Software engineering: social engineering for engineers,' or 'Software engineering: social engineering for those without social skills.'

    We can see the historical development of computer languages as something started by engineers but being taken out of their hands by people-oriented people. Larry Wall is a good example.

    There must be a joke in the idea of threatening the engineers with being made a member of his team at work.
