I work in a studio which is active, among other things, in graphic design.
Here I learnt how much graphic organization of data is important.
Trusting the principle A picture's worth one thousand words,
I'd like to apply that to computer programming.
I think it's possible to lay out code so that, with a glimpse,
we could know what is doing, and how. After, we could focus on the
segment we are interested in.
I mean something that concerns indentation, syntax highlighting,
but much more: teaching (for example, lay out code for books), cognitive
sciences and so on.
I ask to monks who have graphic-, art- and desktop-publishing-
backgrounds (does anyone?): How much could a program be beautiful
and easy to comprehend? Now, I'm going to try something with
Adobe Illustrator... :)
see you. lars
