Computers are sexy, or are they?

Joshua: I think also, computers aren't quite as sexy as they were when we were growing up, you know.
James: No I mean, when I was growing up, computers were the definition of unsexy.
Joshua: Oh I'm sorry, I mean to geeks like ourselves.
Neal: Closures are sexy though.
James: Yes so, we have photographic evidence of that one.

Joshua Bloch, James Gosling and Neal Gafter at the Javapolis discussion panel: The Future of Computing. Better than your favorite sitcom (if you are a Java geek like me).
