Why you have to try it
Sunday, January 1, 2006

Computer Scientist Eugene Wallingford links to an article from Michigan State University about quantum physics and the value of experiments. I'm often astonished at wrong my initial designs turn out to be as I start to sketch them in code (and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone). Humans are generally terrible at understanding the consequences of their actions and intentions. That's why bottom-up, interactive, test-driven, coders-are-designers, Lisp-like programming is the way to go whenever you're not sure exactly what you're doing and is usually still the way to go when you do.

BTW, Happy New Year.
