Bjarne's Interview in MIT Technology Review

As refreshing and thought provoking as ever. I would strongly urge you to read Bjarne's interview (Part 1) completely. Of all the answers, I like the following one in particular.
Expressing dislike of something you don't know is usually known as prejudice. Also, complainers are always louder and more certain than proponents--reasonable people acknowledge flaws.

I believe this answer is true for our personal life too
, just as much it is true in the context as it is presented here. The second part of the interview is available here.
