A fellow named Rodrigo Braz Monteiro posted this list comparing each programming language to a religion, go ahead and see if your favorite programming language match your religion :) .

Some of my favorite:

C would be Judaism – it’s old and restrictive, but most of the world is familiar with its laws and respects them. The catch is, you can’t convert into it – you’re either into it from the start, or you will think that it’s insanity. Also, when things go wrong, many people are willing to blame the problems of the world on it.

Java would be Fundamentalist Christianity – it’s theoretically based on C, but it voids so many of the old laws that it doesn’t feel like the original at all. Instead, it adds its own set of rigid rules, which its followers believe to be far superior to the original. Not only are they certain that it’s the best language in the world, but they’re willing to burn those who disagree at the stake.

Python would be Humanism: It’s simple, unrestrictive, and all you need to follow it is common sense. Many of the followers claim to feel relieved from all the burden imposed by other languages, and that they have rediscovered the joy of programming. There are some who say that it is a form of pseudo-code.

4 people worked together simultaneously on a single Google Docs spreadsheet. Each cell in the 100 row x 186 col spreadsheet was filled using 18 different colors. The entire process was captured in time-lapse.

BlueMaemo is my new Open Source project :), basically BlueMaemo is a port of my Google Summer of Code project, ReMoko, to the Maemo powered devices.

With BlueMaemo you can turn any Maemo-powered devices in a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device through the HID Bluetooth profile. Right now the program still in a alpha version, I’ve planned the first release for the next week. The program functionalities are very similar to the ReMoko functionalities, exception to the accelerometer profile that doesn’t exist in BlueMaemo, because any of the Maemo devices have accelerometer capabilities. The program UI still very beta right now, I’ve to make some changes in order to support different UI themes. In order to support the maemo devices without a hardware keyboard, I had to add a virtual keyboard to the keyboard profile, I reuse a keyboard shipped in the python-efl demos, this virtual keyboard are made in INdT Brazil, so the credits of the virtual keyboard graphics belongs to them.
