I argue that it is representative of those ideas. Consider how history is written and what happens when it is rewritten. First there is the event, then what was written about the event. To rewrite history, the old writing isn't gone, but may no longer be referenced. ReRead that thinking about coding.
I'm also not advocating rewrites, so much as advocating to use it as a means to an end, communicating.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
