After having read the article You’re Doing it Wrong on Communications of the ACM an emotion of emerging pleasure flooded my heart!

  1. The publication of such an article shows that people who are computer scientists try to understand the practical implications of their studies/research (I guess this is the reason this article is hosted on this magazine). 
  2. My diploma thesis tackles with the aforementioned problem (in a similar way like B-trees when compared with binary search trees).
  3. A subtle smile because I was recently reading a paper about whether we should have unbalanced binary trees to handle queries under some specific distribution (short answer: no, there is a good compromise with good worst case bounds and near optimal average case time when we use a balanced form of these trees)
  4. I like the strong theoretical background of people like the author of the article who have the knowledge to criticize constructively what happens in theory.
