Avdi: Trying not to do work, but sometimes finding ways to be pulled into doing work.
Sam: 1) Generating predictions and then correcting your model when those predictions turn out not to be confirmed by sensory data.
2) Object-Oriented Programming should be called Message-Oriented Programming.
3) Computer science as a field really wants to be math and the people who teach computer science want to be mathematicians.
Jessica: Smalltalk feeling like a cathedral where you can get a sense of the architectural beauty.
