Эссе Дейкстры

Ссылка на эссе.

If one's aim is to design something useful, one should avoid designing something useless, because unused: in other words, I fully accept "general acceptance" as a legitimate concern. We must, however, be willing to ignore this concern temporarily --for a few days or a few years, depending on what we are undertaking-- for unwillingness to do so will paralyze us.
Взять, что ли, на вооружение?
