comment Is slower performance of programming languages, really, a bad thing?
@Marcus, It's a rhetorical question. I do not advocate writing programs in machine code.

Here's another thought. Imagine someone comes up with a computer that, unlike modern computers, is smart and at the same time blazing fast. Would you consider that computer a failure?

Yet if speed (of execution) is the ultimate goal why don't we all write our programs in machine code?

No, I wouldn't say you misunderstood the question. Your answer gives a valuable perspective to the topic. I just wanted to point that I did not state that "slow = bad".

Do you think languages that are considered slow (in terms of running), such as PHP, can be implemented to run faster?

You are right saying that "software engineers use programming languages for their needs". This only supports the statement that "programming languages exist to serve programmers".

comment Finding the balance between the important and the interesting
I'd like to ask you a follow up question if I may. Why do we tend to get distracted at the first place? All that happens in our minds should happen for a reason and I wonder what would be the reason behind our desire to distract ourselves.

comment Finding the balance between the important and the interesting
@Jim G., No, I love my job. It's just that I tend to ignore deadlines in favor of working on things that I find interesting at the moment.
