  • I'm just waiting for people to use ESR's personal preferences (Python over Perl, emacs over vi, etc) to push their own agenda at companies. "We're standardizing on Python, because Perl is a nasty, write-only, line-noise language. See, ESR said so, and he's a Recognized Figure."

    I like much of his stuff, and I know that those waging holy war over languages and editors don't really need his blessing, but think about explaining to a PHB why you're right and this International Man of Definitions [catb.org] is wrong.

    Makes me almost glad that my day job doesn't involve coding.
