Steve is right: it was an idea inspired by working with Alex on his book. The editorial was not written with the sole purpose of plugging the book (and, in fact, the idea is not covered in the book).

However, Alex's book is certainly relevant, and I thought people might be interested to know about it.

Cheers,
Tony.

I think I was misled by a combination of the Related Articles links on the page (the top one takes you to the Editorial Review for the book), the link to the book in the article, and the frequent references to 'defensive programming'. The plugging appears to have been all in my mind.

It was in my mind too. The article seemed to be incidentally about double entry book-keeping as an example of defensive programming which was the main topic, despite the title. Maybe we both have the same sort of warped mind?

Heh... 'zactly. And from what I've seen from your two folks posts in the past, it's not a bad thing.
