In which no one is biased, at all

Steve: “Of course, the first thing you need to do if you want to change the world is write a new programming language.”

Ingalls’ paper on Smalltalk: “Instead of a bit-grinding processor raping and plundering data structures, we have a universe of well-behaved objects that courteously ask each other to carry out their various desires.”

Sanders: “Your options are: ‘box’, a name you make up, or the ‘official proper correct linguistics professional name that really smart people use’.”  (…Cue intense political and philosophical debate in which God, the Force, and Sarah Palin are mentioned.)

Man, now I remember why I love Thursdays this semester.
