An updated version highlighted for my new followers.
Programming — iterating over something, a list for example.
Literature — many characters are just another iteration of a previous archetype.
James Clark — a name almost as ubiquitous as John Smith.
There are a plethora of James Clarks on Wikipedia.
Do a Google search and you’ll get an almost infinite number more.
Though I feel pride at having the same name as the legendary programming pioneer, yet, ironically, I still feel the monotony of being only one more in a long line of those with that ubiquitous name.
Or, in other words, when it comes to James Clarks, I am only but…
The Next Iteration.
