He's an idiot; his COSA is somehow based on the idea that hardware design inherently produces a stable and reliable product, whereas software design doesn't, due to its algorthmic nature. He also seems to be convinced that visual design tools are the answer to all life's problems, which indicates that he probably used LogicWorks or the Xilinx visual tools for a highschool/introductory college design course and never actually learned about the existence of VHDL and Verilog. He goes so far as to claim that languages are obsolete and graphical tools are the only correct answer... I wouldn't bother trying to talk to him, anyhow.

When scanning for references to Erlang I occasionally come across this guy:<br><br><a href="http://rebelscience.blogspot.com/" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">http://rebelscience.blogspot.com/
</a><br><br>He is advocating/developing a system called COSA and continually comparing it to Erlang. While I appreciate the references I personally think he is a bit bonkers and just not getting it. Do you think it is worth getting into a discussion with him and try to correct him where he is wrong? Has anyone tried?
