Brad Wardell's views about technology, politics, religion, world affairs, and all sorts of politically incorrect topics.

I was somewhat bummed to read on Coding Horror that Jeff Atwood is leaving the Stack Exchange.   As many of you know, we are pretty religious readers of Coding Horror and Joel on Software.

Jeff’s blog had come up quite a bit recently as we are in the process of coming up with new coding standards here at work.  More specifically, his recent blog on anti-aliasing was a major inspiration for doing “spot antialising” in Elemental: Fallen Enchantress (the idea is to do anti-aliasing very selectively where it counts without it affecting performance).

In his farewell blog, he mentioned some of his reasons for stepping down. Reasons that were very familiar and close to home.  I hope Jeff is able to continue blogging on occasion. I will miss his insight tremendously.
