Tears are a sign of pain. Or of being deeply touched, the soul's indication of a profound truth (and pain of internal readjustment). I had three pages recently doing that to me. The first was a the end of LFM and LFSP, about people stopping coding because they were forced to use langages inadequate for their mind. I feel the beginning of that myself.
Second: Transformation by Steve Yegge. The guy can write, and does so a lot, but this piece has an absolutely beautiful final point. You may not agree with his conclusions but he is interesting reading. And read the book first.
Third: This piece. My detector slightly beeped all the way through--there must be something to it.
