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
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

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.
