What do you think John McCarthy would say if he saw your code? I don't think he'd like it...

John McCarthy - You’re Programming Completely Wrong
John McCarthy - Programming, You Are Doing It Completely Wrong.

John McCarthy - You’re Programming Completely Wrong

The Dijkstra poster is freakin great (I would buy one in a heartbeat), but I don't know anything about McCarthy's philosophy. What doesn't he like my code?

easports, i don't know his philosophy either, but he's super smart, so he'd consider anyone else's code completely wrong :)
