Vrolijke quote

Een kwootje uit het boek Google Maps Hacks:
Creating feature-complete interfaces to geographic data that are so complex as to be inpenetrable by all but the highest of high priest seems to be nearly inevitable. Programmers start with a simple model, and then the world, the data, and the weight of history intrude to "complexify" our models and break our metaphors. When Walt Kelly wrote "We have met the enemy and he is us", he could have been describing the creators of most geospatial apps.
