Bram Cohen QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
ABC is basically mainline with a fancy UI slapped on it. I don't know much about BitComet. Azureus is a completely different codebase, and doesn't have as good a core, but has a fancier interface than mainline.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
An example of a language which is terrible for maintainability is Perl. Yes, I said it. No, I'm not going to back down.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
Despite my emphasis on technology, I do not view laws as inherently evil. My goals are political ones, even if my techniques are not. The only way to fundamentally succeed is by changing existing laws. If I rejected all help from the political arena I would inevitably fail.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
Give and ye shall receive.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
I am a technological activist. I have a political agenda. I am in favor of basic human rights: to free speech, to use any information and technology, to purchase and use recreational drugs, to enjoy and purchase so-called 'vices', to be free of intruders, and to privacy.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
I can come off as pretty arrogant, but it's because I know I'm right. I'm very, very good at writing protocols. I've accomplished more working on my own than I ever did as part of a team.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
I hate dealing with computers in general, so I'm typically OS-agnostic, I've most recently been abused by a windows machine, so I hate that the most for the moment.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
I hated school, and dropped out of college. I got picked on a lot in school, and had a lot of trouble making friends.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
I'm extremely bad at working on things which seem pointless (uninteresting I can mostly deal with). It's caused problems for me at some workplaces, particularly when the whole job was to maintain a garbage legacy codebase.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
I'm now in the very bizarre position of having to beg for people to download porn.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
In terms of work I've always had a Bad Attitude in that I won't work anywhere which requires me to work strict hours or follow a dress code. I don't know if that's an Asperger's thing or not, I think it's just being reasonable.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
It's a bad idea to give too much weight to simulations, especially of something so hairy as real-world Internet behaviour.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
It's always hard to predict what's coming up next. My main guess is that content creators will increasingly start using BitTorrent to distribute their own work directly.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
My father taught me Basic and rudimentary C, I learned everything else on my own, including studying computational complexity on my own. That's more a function of my age than anything else though - back when I was in school there were hardly any programming classes.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
My favorite language for maintainability is Python. It has simple, clean syntax, object encapsulation, good library support, and optional named parameters.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
One thing about school - I always had this attitude that I was in school to learn, and attempted to do whatever was involved in that process, while school had this attitude that I was there to earn grades, which I couldn't care less about. Unsurprisingly, my grades weren't very good.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
The content people have no clue. I mean, no clue. The cost of bandwidth is going down to nothing. And the size of hard drives is getting so big, and they're so cheap, that pretty soon you'll have every song you own on one hard drive. The content distribution industry is going to evaporate.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
The mark of a mature programmer is willingness to throw out code you spent time on when you realize it's pointless.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
The next release of mainline is going to have a lot of the advanced features people want, by the way.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
When I put my mind to it I can be a megalomaniac.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
With BitTorrent, the cat's out of the bag.
Quotation of Bram Cohen
You get so tired of having your work die. I just wanted to make something that people would actually use.
