Language matters

And in my final post of a trifecta today, and to reassure those of you who worry that I buy too much into the Two Cultures phenomenon, I give you a prime example of the intersection of humanities and science.

Take medicine as art and distill it into a coding language. Politics as sausage is sterile by comparison.

Coding taxonomies seem dry until you recognize the magnitude of their influence in our current f**ked up healthcare system. John refers to them as deadweight. I prefer to think of them as red matter. I don't have the patience or aptitude to distill our healthcare dreck into a better future state. Thanks to John, I don't have to.
