You know who I like?
I like Ron Jeffries.
I reckon he's got language mostly sussed.
He sees the meaninglessness in language, to a large extent, but he plugs away communicating anyhow.
I've been lurking on his forum for a while now.
I think he's pretty clever.
I think he's a good leader.
I also think he's a good communicator. That is, at least, a lot of what he says seems to resonate with me, giving me the feeling that I understand what he says.
That said, I actually don't know very much about him at all.
I think I have a book by him... hmm. I guess I could turn my head to find out... nah, that'd remove the Borg-like mystique that I like to maintain for myself by denying other people their identity in my brain.
I reckon any programmer, or 'thinker', who absorbs themselves in their challenges ends up knowing less than what they did to begin with.
Some days I just want to throw it all away.
Language, code, law, custom.
You can only claim utility or reason in the context of it.
Then, on other days, I just want a smoke, a coke, and a meat pie.
I've written a few of these nothing posts over the w/e.
I think I'll post this one.
I think I just gained a deeper appreciation of poetry.
