Quote: Emergence by Steven Johnson

This quote had me laughing out loud earlier today...

"...once you've absorbed enough DNA [in the game], you can pop over to the "mutation" screen and tinker with your genetic makeup -- adding new genes and mutating your existing ones, expanding your character's skills in the process. It's like suddenly learning how to program in C++, only you have to eat the guy from tech support to see the benefits."

-- Emergence: the connected lives of ants, brains, cities, and software by Steven Johnson

I've worked in some rough companies, but, thankfully, never anything quite that bad! (SMILE)
