in reply to Programming is more like:

I chose Other - not because I cannot find similarities in all of the things listed. Oh how I do indeed.

But I would offer simply is that I believe that programming is most like Writing.

Ultimately is it simply an abstract way to express yourself.

There are many formats, from ad writers to columnists to short stories to novels, etc..

There are many styles.

There are many languages.

And if you want to compare popular fiction writers as Metaphors for programming styles then you can say interesting things about J.R.R. Tolkien and Philology for example...

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
