?- predictable(reality).

?- theory = practice.

Most of us already owe prolog a debt indirectly via erlang.

However, logic programming in and of itself has much to teach us about
approaches to systems - taking declarative system descriptions to a new
level of abstraction, and finding ways to integrate these ideas back into
more common workflows.

From prolog to erlang to haskell to lisp to tcl and then back to prolog I
have journeyed, and I'd like to share some of the beautiful and brilliant
things I've discovered along the way and why I think they might make us
better operations geeks.

And when approaching new languages, always remember: You can't scare us,
we've used m4.
