I've read Stiff's blog and I think the questions were good questions and the answers were pretty interesting.
A while ago I got an email out of the blue from someone in Eastern Europe
(Poland I think?) saying 'I hope you don't mind if I ask you a few questions about software.' Then I ran across it again while looking for something in my
inbox on a plane ride, so I dashed off some answers; the person seemed
pleasant and polite.
I can't dig his name up, but he calls himself 'Stiff' and his blog's called
'Sztywny Blog'. Anyhow, he also heard back from from Linus Torvalds, Dave
Thomas, David Heinemeier Hansson, Steve Yegge, Peter Norvig, Guido van Rossum,
and James Gosling.
The answers to his questions are interesting.
