(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

This is one of the better definitions of art that I have come across:

"Painting is a craft. Interactive design is a craft. Writing is a craft. Art is merely craft applied with conscience and care."

From Greg Costikyan.

For years I've been struggling with the idea.. is programming is an art or not? I've been switching back and forth between yes and no, and I'm still undecided.
