Every once in a while I come across a piece of writing that I really connect with. Cold Mountain, Hound Dog, the Red Riding Quartet, Chuck Norris facts – all pieces of writing that have resonated with me.
- The genre – I’m a big fan of short stories, they’re a very efficient way to get a hit of good story telling
- The protagonist – It’s about a man, and I’m a man – how can I not relate to that?
- The format – It’s a review of a man, by all the people that know him, as if he were the product of a developer. Having worked in Tech PR for over two years, I’m well versed on the issues developers of all kinds have with their applications.
Basically, it brightened my day considerably when I read it. It’s short, to the point, and easy to dip in and out of if you’re really, really pressed for time. I urge you to read it.
