Philistines!

Yesterday I cleaned out some old books in my home office and my wife took them into the library to be donated. I discovered that I had two copies of Knuth. So I brought one to work.

A co-worker (and fellow programmer) looked at the books and asked “what are those?” “Knuth,” I replied–remembering a day when I was at Caltech when that meant something. “What’s that?”

Philistine.
