In general observations on some aspect relating to the shape of code, thoughts and musings on what might cause this shape (in particular developer habits, cognitive limits and thought processes), what its consequences might be and anything that might be done about it.  I have seen enough code to know that shape rarely has any noticeable external effect and am generally shape agnostic; I want to see empirical evidence before supporting any claim that a particular shape leads to fewer faults or cheaper to maintain code. Sometimes I will wander off this track to talk about something of technical interest to me.
