Algorithmic expressionism - Bobulate
"Writing software can be very intuitive. Even with a very formally defined programming goal, there are usually many different ways to achieve that goal. Choosing a good path to achieve the goal is a question of intuition, judgment, intelligence, and probably a thousand other things." ... "This immediately struck me as similar to E. L. Doctorow on writing: “writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”"
