comment Learning to program on punchcards
Inspired by the image recognition idea, I went looking around for a punchcard emulator. Didn't find one. But this could be a fun OCR project. :)

comment How to manage a developer with good knowledge of programming language but very poor analytical skills
How long has this guy been at the job? It's entirely possible the kid is overwhelmed from being in a new environment and the creative centers of his brain have turned off. Some people need time to settle in... though this may not be the kind of person you want at your "fast growing" company.
