why’s (Poignant) Guide to Ruby, the most whimsical programming book ever written.
Here’s a great quote from the enigmatic programmer known only as “why the lucky stiff” on why you should create:
when you don’t create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. your tastes only narrow & exclude people. so create.
Very true, especially since there are whole industries and professions that specialize in manipulating your tastes in order to get you to line other people’s pockets. Well put, why!
