What makes programming so fun?
Friday, April 21, 2006

My wife sometimes -- often! -- complains about the amount of time I spend staring and typing on my Powerbook. "What is it?" she wonders, "that makes that thing so interesting?" I wish I knew.

Why is it that some humans get "it"? Why do only some of us find this frustrating business of hacking form out of recalcitrant bits an endeavor that almost always leaves us wanting more? I don't think it's just a power urge (look, I control the virtual universe inside my computer) or basic misanthropy (heck, I like people!).
