I’m not the type of guy that throws quotes onto bio pages, but hey, I thought it would be fun this time:

“For a long time it puzzled me how something so expensive, so leading edge, could be so useless. And then it occurred to me that a computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things. They are, in short, a perfect match.”
– Bill Bryson

“Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.”
– Martin Golding

“Good design adds value faster than it adds cost.”
– Thomas C. Gale

“You want to make your way in the CS field? Simple. Calculate rough time of amnesia (hell, 10 years is plenty, probably 10 months is plenty), go to the dusty archives, dig out something fun, and go for it. It’s worked for many people, and it can work for you.”
– Ron Minnich

“Once a new technology starts rolling, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.”
– Stewart Brand
