TITLE: Different Kinds of Lazy and Dumb AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: May 09, 2006 5:07 PM DESC: ----- BODY: Sometime in the last month, I came across a link to an article that is a couple of years old, Why Good Programmers Are Lazy and Dumb. I like to read that kind of article every once in a while, even if I've seen the general ideas before. Usually, such an article hits me in a particular way according to my current frame of mind. Here are the ideas that stood out for me this weekend: Just as it's true that if you can't handle the right kind of pain you'll have a hard time getting better at much of anything, it's true that if you can't find the balance between the rights kind of lazy and dumb, you'll have a hard time taking your skills to the next level. -----
