Moral: Make safe mistakes on purpose
I learn things the slow way. I like sticking myself into things because it makes me care about them. I constructed my own name very slowly.
Then I tried to run my name.
It didn’t work. I love seeing an error like this:
“I made a style error”. Yes, I wore sandles with socks once.
“Kenneth is an undefined function”. Yes, I don’t don’t what the heck my function is on this planet.
“Udut is an undefined variable” – Yes, the actions of my family are very variable and quite undefined.
I did learn that #LISP expected:
a) KENNETH to be a function
b) UDUT to be a variable.
