Joe, the Amazing Coding Monkey

While reading J's Crick, I encountered a link to Bruce Tate's (of Bitter Java) brilliant allegory about Joe, the Amazing Coding Monkey. It describes beautifully the evolution of something that I fell in love with a decade ago into something that I now find a little indigestable. (It's all just detail, which is tolerable, but there's so much of it now.) Interestingly Bruce has also selected the same language that's on top of my "to learn" list.
