Someone tried to quantify programming languages with regards to code size vs runtime speed

An awesome read for anyone interested in programming language comparison. Nice to see that Java is pretty quick, but can get verbose (as we all know).

Thanks for pointing out this article. For a decade I'm been arguing that most computer science graduates haven't been taught scientific methodology. This can be seen in many 'web shops' where 5 programmers in a room will have 5 (radically) different ideas on 'what is best'. Without science in the mix, it's a crap shoot, and all of us end up paying the price for the many non-scientific decisions the herd makes.
