Sounds Right to Me

From Jay Reding, developer of BloGTK:

I believe that when Asimov postulated that a significantly advanced technology would look like magic, he was referring to regular expressions.

UPDATE: Sandy Smith correctly points out in the comments that the original quotation should be attributed to Arthur C. Clarke, not Isaac Asimov. So, yeah! Fuck you, Asimov.

Azimov may have muttered something about regexes, but Clarke was talking about technology generally.

No, the song goes, “Azimov, fuck yeah!”
