Architecture Astronauts

I’d read some of Joel’s articles
before, not never really got around to reading a lot of them. Maybe its
because I hate reading long articles on a computer; maybe its because I
only became aware of his stuff well after he was at his most prolific.

Anyway, I’m thoroughly enjoying reading the
book
at the moment. Catherine gave me her typical “you’re such a freak” look
last night as I chuckled to myself over this description of Architecture
Astronauts
:

When you go too far up, abstraction-wise, you run out of oxygen. Sometimes smart thinkers just don’t know when to stop, and they create these absurd, all-encompassing, high-level pictures of the universe that are all good and fine, but don’t actually mean anything at all.
