Today I took a light rail with my son, to bring him to school. That tram is 90 years old. It has been maintained for 90 years. Milan city sold some of them to San Francisco too.
If you are at San Francisco, I will suggest you Cafe Claude for a very good dinner. I have tried there a seared ahi tuna and a very nica peppercorn sauce, leaving on the table only 40$, but with a very nice memory of it.
I have read http://www.manageability.org/blog/stuff/chandler-failure and I think it is very danger way of exposing concepts.
In the article pointed out, the quite dead Chandler project is compared to the multi-billion Eclipse project. And then a too easy analysis is done against dynamic languages, where Java is the absolute winner.
I will try to fix some of the things said there, and to add also my two cents here :)
