Simplistic programming is underrated – Daniel Lemire's blog

I was a nerdy kid who liked to spend a lot of time reading. Back then, we did not have the Internet, we could not even imagine it… so I ended up reading the dictionary, reading my encyclopedia. I had a weird vocabulary. I could easily string sentences that nobody around me could understand. Adults would reward me with special attention when I would use words that they did not know.
