We spend most of our times obsessing about the actual act of programming.
Is this method name too long? Should I refactor this code? How do I fix
this bug? However, sometimes, large gains can be made by drawing in

aesthetics. In this talk, I'll give an overview of a bunch of interesting
thinkers, philosophical problems, and how they relate to the worlds of
software development, open source, and startups.
