I just, (seriously, just) read an interview with Ken Thompson arguing that this over-layering is killing him.

Edit: It was in the book Clean Code.

Could you provide page number or chapter name or (preferably) a quote? I searched for "Thompson" in the book and couldn't find anything.


Hey, sorry i had two books in front me and misreported the title. The book is Coders at Work.


I just saw that book on a coworker's desk of mine, now I've GOT to check it out, thanks!


Hey, it was Coders at Work not Clean Code. :) I have both and I guess I mixed the two.
