Joe Armstrong is gone

Very sad day. It is a real lose. He was a great wizard, principle-guided.

On the second thought I would say that I always felt happiness and gratitude while reading his books or watching his talks - a lone voice of sanity and principle-guided reason in the sea of screaming bullshit, a lone figure in a crowd of bearded narcissistic clowns, like Wadler or whoever it might be.

This gratitude for showing the power of clear disciplined reasoning guided by the right principles I would carry with me and will try to pass further. Thank you, Joe! You were a great teacher, a guru and you literally have moved the earth!

I think I should have a drink.
