mektronik writes "An article in Enterprise Networking Planet (http://www.enterprisenetworkingplanet.com/netos/a rticle.php/3696296) is discussing the tactic of closed source projects hiding poorly written and poorly designed software behind the shill cries of "Trade Sekkrets" et. al."

stoners make better programmers/designers?

mektronik mektronik writes  |  more than 7 years ago

mektronik (997698) writes "I have recently, albeit belatedly, come across a genera of music calling itself Nerdcore. It is essentially hip hop for geeks with rappers such as MCPlus+. The interesting part to note is that MOST of them talk about getting stoned while programming, this is something that I myself have long indulged in as have many friends of mine. On the other hand I have worked with a lot of programmers that do not. I generally find a strong correlation between stoners and better coders/designers, I have historically put this down to "thinking out of the box", but may in fact be a lot deeper. Am I totally off the mark? what do you think?"
