  • A programming language should not be a reflection of how the designer thinks.

    It'll always be some kind of homeomorphism of how he/she/it thinks, though, won't it?

      Not if there's more than one person designing it.

      Even if there is one person, a good designer can think like their users instead of thinking they are the user. This is why designers go to design school. :)

      One can argue that the biases of the designer(s) will always be reflected in the design, but hopefully not quite so clearly as with Arc.
  • Many years ago I read references to Paul Graham, and then reading his articles I was bamboozled. What was all the fuss about? Perhaps it just all went over my head. So, every few years I'd read another article, but my opinion never changed. Now, with Arc mercifully designed to put people off, I suspect it'll never have to change...
