Hi Blaine,

Check out the 3rd Ruby on Rails podcast. http://podcast.rubyonrails.org/

Tobias L├╝tke talks about code beauty being very important. I thought it was a good podcast where content is concerned but a little painful to ear where production quality is concerned.

Adios.

I found the quote "As speed of development approaches infinity, reusability becomes irrelevant." more telling.

It helps explain why Squeak changes take more time than expected; making sure reusability still works for everyone.

I've suspected that something like Intentional Programming or Rule-based programming might overtake OOP for speed of understanding, modeling, & creation. Code as text, how quaint.
