Looks like this is the special 'code politics' edition...
- A Generation Lost in the Bazaar - A skeptical look at what the explosion of bazaar-type design has left us with. Much as I politically prefer the bazaar, I think it's obvious that the quality of most modern software can best be described as "crap." Of course this applies to closed source projects as well.
- Matz's Ruby Developers Don't Use RubySpec and It's Hurting Ruby - A rant.
- RubySpec is dead, long live RubySpec! - And a counterpoint.
