Code Monks

Dear brothers and sisters in faith, I am writing to share a recent discovery that may bring reconciliation. Remember that our orders are still very close as we both strive to improve the life of our fellow man through code. It is only on the matter of giving credit that we differ, and while I wish that you recognized that a helpful code patch is a moral act regardless of whether it is acknowledged, I trust that you understand that our order has no particular objection to changelogs or credit, and that only technological limitation have forced us to do what we do. We had tried to lift those limitations, but without success. Until now, that is.

We have found a new way to leverage the specificity of the code we constructed to, for the first time, mix data with metadata in a way that resists evolution.

It is my sincere hope that this new technology may unite us again. We call it “introns”.
