Sys-Con is running this massively-inane piece about the top twenty people in Software (the list of nominees excludes Wirth, Knuth, Dijkstra, and von Neumann) with, to add insult to injury, a headline that claims the list is mine. Now bloody Slashdot’s picked the stupid thing up. It’s not my list, nobody talked to me, and this is extremely unprofessional. I have a note in to Sun Legal. [Update: They took me out of the title. Thank you.] [Update: one of the slashdot comments is very good.]
