Oddly, this story links me to the blog homepage http://macleodsawyer.com/ when the title is from the article at http://macleodsawyer.com/2015/03/06/nine-truths-computer-programmers-know-that-most-people-dont/. Clicking the Lobste.rs submit bookmarklet on the page takes me back to this story, though. I’m puzzled how this story seems to have two URLs.
