About blog started out by there being some programmers who were interested in finding out more about programmers.

As in every other aspect of life, there are well-founded opinions about programmers and less well-founded opinions about programmers. We believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts. In order not to make decisions on grounds you did not intend or on grounds that may be somehow unfair, you might want to reflect upon your opinions, and if possible, try to find out if there are any pieces of supporting knowledge, any pieces of evidence for your opinions. If not, maybe you’d like to update your opinions.

Facts about programmers are not necessarily facts about the physical world. Not that programmers are from some other dimension (although some of us are), but many facts about people are hard, if not impossible, to establish. But if several independent investigations by lots of different people converge on something similar, then one might in the course of time begin to establish a well-founded opinion, which you might want to call a “fact”.

So here you are. A blog that will give you empirical data on programmers. This data is dead unless you make it come alive by interpreting it, so please go ahead and analyze it and post your results and interpretations and opinions.

Perhaps in a while, some “facts” will start to pop up. Don’t be shy; we aren't.
