"Worse is better" - the roots

Just found "The Rise of ``Worse is Better''" - what seems to be almost the definition of worse is better, as discussed e.g. at LL1.

I have intentionally caricatured the worse-is-better philosophy to convince you that it is obviously a bad philosophy and that the New Jersey approach is a bad approach. However, I believe that worse-is-better [...] has better survival characteristics than the-right-thing.

Via Bram Cohen - who looks to be a very clever guy. I should probably get into Python like the rest of them (or Ruby, like some of the other rest of them) Perl6 on the other hand does look like it will be great, even if only for us braindamaged perl users.
