Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Holst’s Planets are cited as the beginning of the Modern Era. I’ve always felt like Ravel’s La Valse was the end of the Romantic. It’s beautiful, but it takes the elegance of the waltz and spins it out of control – not by speeding it up, but by attacking its internal musical logic. Stravinsky and Holst may have departed from the Romantic Era, but Ravel salted the earth.Report
