Why Not Try The Road Less Travelled?

Phil Windley writes...

I was having a discussion with some engineers about what languages to use in various portions of a project. There was a core piece that really needs to be optimized for performance to the greatest extent possible and other parts where cross-platform and user interface issues dominate. I began to realize that almost no recent development in programming languages helps with the former. We're probably still going to write it in C++, with all its warts, so that we can compile it.
Oh my. At least read this PDF first, especially the section by Jonathan Sobel.

Hi, Pat,

Thanks for thois pointer to a wonderful document (http://kbm.blogspot.com/2004/07/ok-im-starting-to-get-this.html).

But where is the section by Jonathan Sobel; I can see a couple of quotation ( including the excellent Jon Rossie - does he have a web site?))
