Highlight quote of the day:
It is better to have 100 functions operate on one data structure than 10 functions on 10 data structures.
— Alan J. Perlis

Friends often ask me why I appreciate Clojure so much. I usually tell basically the same quote but in a more complicated way: it has a very delightful and minimal set of abstractions, and yet you can solve all of the usual problems with them. I think this quote is a more concise and understandable explanation, so I’m putting it to my argumentation toolbox from now on.
