What is so worthy mentioning on this obvious stament, describing fate likely shared by many thousand or milions of software developers worldwide ? Not much, only the date. According this book (which is a pretty good read btw),
Sir Maurice came to the sad realization mentioned above in the year 1949.
Just wondering – what have we learned since ?
