in reply to 2011: The dark year of IT?

I don't know about you, but for me 2011 is certainly the low point of this century so far. What do you think?
Only barely a bit more than 10% of this century is past us, so don't despair: plenty more time to achieve even deeper points!

For me the worst (in IT, that is) that could happen is that Prof. Donald Knuth dies before he can finish his "The Art of Computer Programming" series of books. I hope he takes his vitamins regularly and eats his vegetables.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
