a funny thing happened at IPC9. a bunch of were sitting in the
lounge (bar) talking, and one person mentioned that he was going
to study kendo while in japan this year. i asked if he had previous
martial arts experience, and he said yes, he'd studied judo.
it then turned out that in this group of maybe 6-7 people, we had
this judo/kendo student, another who's done karate and now kickboxing,
another who did karate, myself (okinawan karate, aikijutsu and others),
and a pa qua practitioner. at the next table sat another tae kwon
it seemed like an odd coincidence, but it made me wonder: is there an
unusually high percentage of MA practitioners among the python
or the open source community? or software in general?
enquiring minds want to know...
