The phlegmatic programmer

There is more crazy shit out there than we programmers would like to admit. If you are lucky, some of it will happen to you. But this is not what this blog is about.

This blog is about artifacts; more specifically, about those kinds of artifacts that can be hosted on a computer, i.e. virtual artifacts. I am mostly interested in virtual artifacts like programming languages, theorem provers, iPhone apps, that kind of stuff.

We are the creators of all virtual artifacts. Often this leads us to the assumption  that because we created a virtual artifact, we must surely understand it! Often, this assumption is wrong.

Finding the balance between creating interesting and inspiring virtual artifacts, and understanding them, is the central theme of this blog. Many posts will be touched by the desire to strike this balance.
