Very pleased with EU election result.
- Strong Remain (Lib Dem, Green, etc) got 40.4%
- Strong Leave (Bexit and UKIP) only got 34.9%
Don't Know (Lab and Con) got 23.2%.

Here's an interesting perspective: Code Is Not Literature gigamonkeys.com/code-reading/

It addresses a puzzle:

> [So many programmers say], “People should read code” but few people seem to actually do it. I’d be surprised if I interviewed a novelist and asked them what the last novel they had read was, and they said, “Oh, I haven’t really read a novel since I was in grad school.” Writers actually read other writers but it doesn’t seem that programmers really do, even though we say we should.
