C. STRACHEY

 
"I get the impression that Stretch is in some way the end of one line of development. Like some early computer programs it is immensely ingenious, immensely complicated, and extremely effective, but somehow at the same time crude, wasteful, and inelegant, and one feels that there must be a better way of doing things. "
- C. Strachey - from Brooks' notes on the Second System Effect The quotation is lifted from The Mythical Man-Month, Essay 5: The Second-System Effect., The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering, Anniversary Edition (2nd Edition) by Frederick P. Brooks , ISBN: 0201835959
