JWZ or JS?

I was just wondering... (I do that a lot when I post things here like the ones I've been posting these last few days...)

Who is your favorite Internet persona? Jamie Zawinski (direct, harsh, sort of a cowboy) or Joel Spolsky (meticulous, carefull, more reserved) ?

Hell, too much free time on my hands (and an incredibly shrinking deadline)

Hani - http://www.jroller.com/page/fate

For me it's Martin Fowler.

Hani gets boring after some weblog entries. He repeats himself a lot and very seldomly says something insightful. He's somewhat funny though.

Well on my wall I have posters of jwz's dummies and my stalker phototgraphs of JS.

Like, I had to breathe today to read this?

Nah, you just couldn't resist the calling of a misteriously titled post. And when you got in, you just couldn't get out.

Martin Fowler doesn't post as much stuff now he's back on the stall.

Can't we like both?

I like how Martin Fowler's approach is what he calls a "bliki" - a blog/wiki combination.

If there were any indication a couple of programmers in a garage can outwit the most innovative blue chip company, some of you could be reading all the wrong materials.
