Scarily accurate quiz.

BBSpot has a quiz to decide “Which Programming Lanuguage Are You?” Look what I got:

You are Smalltalk. You like to treat everyone the same way, but this lack of individuality makes everyone feel like objects.

The quiz

Where should we spend the money?

“Dave Snowden”:http://www.cognitive-edge.com/2006/10/slavery.php recently cited a UNESCO report that currently there are 27 million slaves worldwide and that their average price is £60. Inspired by Robert Cringley’s “Modest Proposal”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Modest_Proposal that it would be more effective to “buy everyone in the US a low emission car”:http://www.pbs.org/cringely/pulpit/2006/pulpit_20061222_001373.html, it struck me that the total cost of buying everyone’s freedom would be £1,620M. This isn’t much more than a couple of failed UK government IT projects. Perhaps we could get the big consultancies to chip in.
