Software enabler

Communicating is hard for me. One reason I blog is to exercise that underdeveloped part of my mind. My strategy is simple, if I can't get the words out of my mouth try writing them down. Because I find this hard I'm always amazed by technical folks who communicate so well. My hero's in this category in chronological order include: Charles Petzolds, Scott Meyers, Steve McConnell, All the folks in the GoF, Andy Hunt, Dave Thomas and finally Martin Fowler.

In fact it's a recent post on Martin Fowler bliki that sparked this post. Whether or not his observation on the bifurcated nature of software culture makes a dent in the developer zeitgeist isn't an issue for me. I just find it amazing that he was able to snatch that observation from the ether and write it down.
