Greybeard? Maybe (I dunno, never met you ;) ). Obsolete? Hardly.
How else are people gonna learn, if not from the old-timers, because
seriously, if pottering et. al. are supposed to be the teachers, we
might as well all go back to Win...
No Dan, you miss the point!
Veterans should never be listened to, because doing so impedes
progress. How can you ever improve if you do it the same way as people
with 20 years experience?
How much more progressive it is to follow people who have only done it
for a couple years. Think of the avenues you'll explore getting their
code to work. Think of the clever workarounds you'll be making, in
order to fix problems baked in by five generations of yearlings. Think
of the user interface possibilities when you throw away all knowledge
and make something brand new.
Don't trust anyone over thirty!
