I don't actually see programming that way myself... but I kinda wish I did?

It's a way of looking at the world, which had never occured to me before. One which I know "logically" to be wrong, yet I feel it would be more fun it if it were right.

I'd love to hear what other people think of the concept.

I totally think that!!

I know only the most basic html and even that makes me excited to write a string that makes stuff happen or look different or appear where nothing was there before.

I hope I never lose that feeling of html magic.
