Longing for Meaning

Might just be the post hangover depression, but I woke up this morning with a great longing for meaning. Why do we use all kinds of tools that actually hide the meaning and intention of our programs. I’m talking about fit and fitnesse, which actually does great amount of damage to my respect for Ward Cunningham. I don’t want to hear excuses about the target audience and anything. Eventually you do want to have a full blown programming language for testing, not a macro assembler.

In the point of programming is to create and clarify meaning. Not to obscure it.
