Copy what you like...

Paul Graham advises us to copy what we like,
Whenever I see a painting impressively hung in a museum, I ask myself: how much would I pay for this if I found it at a garage sale, dirty and frameless, and with no idea who painted it? If you walk around a museum trying this experiment, you'll find you get some truly startling results. - Paul Graham
It sounds like sound advise. I'll bear it in mind next time someone asks me why I wrote my entire system in Perl and not Java. Although possible the laughter gives it away?
