Paul Graham parodies

Paul Graham, a hacker, but these days maybe better described as a gentleman programmer, was an early bayesian spam filtering pioneer, and writes essays that are occasionally great about hacking, the business of hacking and ... other things.
I own the book, there's great stuff in it, but that doesn't mean that this parody isn't funny:

Google Maps is essentially a large Javascript application. Great hackers have an almost instinctual aversion to Javascript. Google is betting its future on something a tasteful programmer's radar rejects.

If was in the footnotes of the equally great Dabblers and Blowhards. You shouldn't read the title essay from Graham's book without reading this.
