Jonathan Rentzsch continues an interesting thread started by Andrew Leonard's interview with Scott Rosenberg in Salon about programmers' apparent need to continually reinvent the wheel by rewriting code that other people have already written. They both have interesting takes on it. Rosenberg says:

Programmers are programmers because they like to code - given a choice between learning someone else's code and just sitting down and writing their own, they will always do the latter.

And Rentzsch continues:

Rosenberg is wrong. Programmers don't like coding, they like problem solving.

If programmers liked to code, we'd all be writing in machine language to this day. You can write that stuff all day and get precious little of the real problem solved.

They both have good points, but I think this really needs to be put in the context of a real software development project to be understood.
