in reply to MOPT-01 - assumptions and spaces

Computers do not think.


Programming is the art of thinking clearly,
and, A computer programmer is a human who's learned to think like a computer.

So, a computer programmer is a human who's learned not to think?


Nice article, by the way.

    And you think like a programmer :). This isn't meant to be insulting (as I'm sure it might be construed, although probably not by someone who thinks like a programmer) but it occurred to me that the way you honed in on that little logical gem is pretty good evidence that you have experience thinking like a computer (although the fact that you found it significant/amusing is wonderfully human).
