Showing All The Light We Give / And Showing Where The Light Extends

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2010 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Today my husband called me up and read to me from the barnburner epilogue to The Psychology of Computer Programming by Gerald Weinberg, and another friend talked with me about relationship problems and the importance of openness to change and to multiple perspectives, and another about a doctor visit and exoticizing and how CS is taught in university, and now another friend is reciting "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" to me over instant messenger.

I am so lucky.

Having not too much exposure to Dar Williams, I like that song. The people on the other end of that link are equally as lucky.
