Productive Culture [Mar. 28th, 2005|02:13 pm]
I followed a link to a very interesting essay today, and when I bounced up to the "Essays" page to see what else the author might have written of interest, discovered that there were already eight followed links from some unremembered previous visit. So it would seem that Paul Graham writes good stuff.

Why Americans make some things well and others badly.

Quite possibly my fault - I've linked to several of his essays on my blog. He writes way interesting stuff. I haven't read through all of his essays yet, but I came across an old one recently explaining why hackers should behave more like painters than engineers. It's quite interesting and makes a lot of sense: http://www.paulgraham.com/hp.html

Good one! I love stuff that talks about the hacker identity/culture/aesthetic and gets it right.

And, yes, I'm sure it's All Your Fault™.
