Hot dawg, I forgot how much Pete Naur's "Programming as Theory Building" slaps.

It's the good stuff.

Also, the dude loves himself a long-ass sentence.

I would also love to use the paper in a class one day to show how not to cite papers -- the entire piece, starting from the title, is built on the word "theory" and I've just now dived into the cited sources to realize that what Naur means by "theory" isn't the usual definition of the word "theory."
