There is no hope

If one's to give any credibility to this study, then campaigns like this one stand no chance at all to light up a fruitful dialogue.

Nonetheless I'm glad things like this are happening and the voice of the non believers is making itself heard next to the believers' voice, who usually tend to shout way too loud for anything else to be heard.

Visual Programming Revisited

I find Subtext (soon to be called Juncture) highly interesting, the basic premise is true (we are restrained by text) and the solution looks like going in the right direction, as less work and easier reasoning are always welcome. I still wonder how will that extend to huge systems, but I'm willing to let it pass for now.

Check the video on it and you'll be surprised. You might love it or hate it, but it will surprise you. That's just how it is with great ideas.

You should also check Jonathan Edwards' (the author of this experiment) blog, Alarming Development.
