Mejorando lo presente

Robert B . LeightonThe need for a basic revision arose both from the rapid development of physics in recent decades and from the fact that entering freshmen have shown a steady increase in mathematical ability as a result of improvements in high school mathematics course content.

Las negritas son cosa mía. Estoy deseando que llegue el día en el que alguno de los profesores universitarios que conozco pueda decirme algo parecido. En Extremadura, a día de hoy, lo que me cuentan es justo lo contrario.

La historia de Mel

I have often felt that programming is an art form,
whose real value can only be appreciated
by another versed in the same arcane art;
there are lovely gems and brilliant coups
hidden from human view and admiration, sometimes forever,
by the very nature of the process.
You can learn a lot about an individual
just by reading through his code,
even in hexadecimal.
Mel was, I think, an unsung genius.

Escuché hablar de Mel en el programa 000 de We.Developers.

Para algunos vivir es galopar
un camino empedrado de horas,
minutos y segundos.
Yo más humilde soy
y sólo quiero que la ola que surge
del último suspiro de un segundo,
me transporte mecido hasta el siguiente.
