> Something I ran into that the group might enjoy:
> From: http://www.techreview.com/InfoTech/17831/
> "Bjarne Stroustrup, the inventor of the C++ programming language,
> defends his legacy and examines what's wrong with most software code."
> As always, Slashdot has some colorful coverage on this:
> "MIT's Technology Review has a Q&A with C++ inventor Bjarne Stroustrup.
> Highlights include Bjarne's answers on the trade-offs involved in the
> design of C++, and how they apply today, and his thoughts on the
> solution to the problems. From the interview: 'Software developers have
> become adept at the difficult art of building reasonably reliable
> systems out of unreliable parts. The snag is that often we do not know
> exactly how we did it.'"
