Higher Primates Can Program After VB.NET Training - The finding have implications for the entire software industry, with some scientists predicting routine programming such as maintenance and report writing will be performed by teams of primates within 10 years.

This made me laugh hard. My favorite quote: Test subjects with the best results were baboons and bonobo apes. Both primate species demonstrated stressful behaviors when presented with Java tools and utilities.

  • That graphic of human evolution/devolution was nice. I'll never lose MY job to a monkey. Never!
  • Monkeys can do anything. Monkeys can do everything. Monkeys will conquer all.
  • If we're talking Java, they should be using orangutans.
