It’s because I’m just sort of thinking out loud, stream of consciousness-style. I’m not taking a lot of time editing—just minimal “sanitizing” to make sure I’m not leaking too much proprietary information. It’s all so technical, because that’s the way I think. I care deeply about my tools, and I like to use as few of the “right” tools as possible, and master them deeply. That’s why you’ll hear a lot of talk about Linux, Python and vim. I feel this sort of thing is going to be as mainstream as reading, writing and arithmetic in a few years, and many more people will be able to speak this sort of language. It’s the “plumbing” of the information technology world.
