Here is another one of my favorite quotes from the special double issue of Bloomberg Businessweek on computer coding. This one gives us a clue about where coders go to find help (Paul Ford, “The Code Issue”, 6/15/15–6/28/15, p. 92):

Sometimes a request goes too hard, for example, calling itself so many times that the stack, which is a finite resource, fills up and can’t take it anymore. Hence the name of the website Stack Overflow, where programmers go to answer questions and help each other solve bugs. It’s the 62nd-most-visited website in the world, trailing Craigslist by a few spots.
