Just a short note this morning: I have to admit I found this Unix koan particularly amusing.
I am a little disappointed in myself though. I spend pages and pages of digital real estate explaining the natural efficiency of text-based systems, and someone else can condense it into a brief and pointed story.
I have much to learn.
Take your time and skim through some of the other koans on that site. While I can’t vouch for their metaphysical value, they are at least an interesting way to look at the art of computing.
Thanks to cantrell for sending it along.
