Steve Yegge's blog posts are usually entertaining.  This one looks at
the various phases a programmer goes through as they gain experience and
draws a parallel between the noob programmers excessive commenting and
the practice of excessive typing.


It is quite long (as Steve's posts tend to be) but worth a read anyway.
If you've ever worked on a team of more than one programmer I'm sure
you'll recognise descriptions of some of your colleagues.  If you're
honest, you'll probably even recognise descriptions of yourself :-)
