99% of programming is figuring out why you received a banana when you asked for an apple.

(And the answer is always “because you actually asked for a banana all along.”)

@aral "(And the answer is always “because you actually asked for a banana all along.”)"

That is the authoritarian nature of coding I do not like. Computer: I was just following orders, you are to blame.

Maybe now that codes are becoming as complicated as living beings they have to start accepting some of the blame for what they do and make us do. 😉

@VictorVenema
"As complicated as living things?" Maybe the whole information system of a multinational with bad IT practices for as long as IBM exists vs a mono cellular bacteria.

Otherwise, there is still a lot of complexity to add to computers.
