If programming has a signature occupational disease, it's not carpal tunnel or social awkwardness. It's our uncritical belief that building complex systems automatically entitles us to also understand them.
@bueno the first rule of complex systems club is; you do not talk about complex systems club ;-P
@bueno the profession also shows us that even systems that are supposedly completely deterministic can be very hard to understand, from which, if we are lucky, we learn some humility. How much more humble must we then be in the face of organic, stochastic, evolved systems!
