If you’re looking for instructions on how to set the SelectedItem property of the ASP.NET ListView control, you’ve come to the wrong blog. This is a blog about big ideas, about where the software industry is headed, and why the conventional wisdom regarding the proper way to develop software is often just plain wrong.
You see, computer programmer types like to think that they are logical thinkers, but I’ve observed that, just like in any other industry, they mindlessly follow the herd and adopt best practices like object oriented programming, unit testing, design patterns, “agile” methodologies, etc, which are all actually bad practices and lead to overpriced low-quality bug-ridden software.

(Of course there is a legitimate need for information like how to set the SelectedItem property of the ASP.NET ListView control given the poor Microsoft documentation.)
