Someone should add something on "knobology".
I really don't like the VB example. Algorithms and VB programs are both procedural knowledge, even if the former is more general. So this example acutally does not truely show the weakness of procedural knowledge.
(I didn't write the sentence above and don't know who did) It seems to me that the VB example is bad because it tries to explain something in terms of variety in programming languages - not a particularly accessible illustration. Will the lay person know what a Microsoft job-shop is and why it is to be expected that a VB programmer's skills will only be useful there? 184.108.40.206 01:43, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
