I'm a lurker here mostly, and wmii user, but I have a simple personal request.

I hang out, and debate often with, a lot of academic computer-science types, as well as more practical-leaning software developer types. Usually, if I don't quite grok what they are saying off-hand, they can point me in the direction of an article, essay, book or two, that clears up confusion.

So, are there 1 or 2 (or 9 or 10, even) articles, essays, softwares (besides the more obvious Plan9, ed, etceteras dicussed here) that you can suggest as a reference, that, when taken together, pretty much sum up together to be what you would like to seen in software?

Thanks! I really am curious.
