Irrational Exuberance!

Anti-Objects and Reflexive Decisions (repost)

June 7, 2007 This is the new home of an old entry from the now defunct original incarnation of *Irrational Exuberance*. These entries are almost two years old, and haven't necessarily aged well, but maybe that's a good thing. This one talks about object orientation often blinding us from simple solutions.

A Comp. Sci Degree is What You Make Of It (repost)

June 5, 2007 This is the new home of an old entry from the now defunct original incarnation of *Irrational Exuberance*. These entries are almost two years old, and haven't necessarily aged well, but maybe that's a good thing. This article was written in response to a topical outcry on the value of computer science. What can I say, I was young back then.

Is the JVM the "next assembly"? I hope not. (repost)

June 4, 2007 This is the new home of an old entry from the now defunct original incarnation of *Irrational Exuberance*. These entries are almost two years old, and haven't necessarily aged well, but maybe that's a good thing. (The original title of this was "Is Java the "next assembly"?". A year or two it was pointed out that JVM is more appropriate than Java. Better late than never, right?)

Reflections on Django (repost)

June 1, 2007 This is the new home of an old entry from the now defunct original incarnation of *Irrational Exuberance*. These entries are almost two years old, and haven't necessarily aged well, but maybe that's a good thing. This was my first written thoughts on using Django. Kind of funny to look back on them years later.

Good to Great, Paul Graham and Ayn Rand (repost)

June 1, 2007 This is the new home of an old entry from the now defunct original incarnation of *Irrational Exuberance*. These entries are almost two years old, and haven't necessarily aged well, but maybe that's a good thing. This article attempts--spuriously--to find a connection between various things I apparently once felt were important. (The original title was "Good to Great, Paul Graham, Ayn Rand, and a spurious attempt to connect them")
