Just for the record

Gregor Kiczales is a dangerous embecile who took a bad computational model and made it much, much worse. Thanks to his blithe and ignorant redefinition of very clear and extremely informative terms, the chances Dijkstra's posterity will achieve the badly needed maturity for our profession that Dijkstra, himself, long pursued are greatly reduced.

It seems IBM played a large part in spreading Kiczales' ignorance. Perhaps it was unintended retribution for Dijkstra's criticisms of the big blue mentality. Regardless, had IBM and Kiczales any decency, they would be extremely ashamed of themselves. Received on Tue Jun 27 2006 - 20:22:17 CDT
