Russian programmers

Russian programmers got a nice plug over at Marginal Revolution in the comment section:
My experience with Russians are that they are the best hackers. They trust themselves, they are self-contained and they work with meager resources and really sweat the details. I’ve worked with a few and I would love for all of my code to be eyeballed by a Russian programmer who’d make it work in less memory. I like the fatalism built into Russian engineering, makes stuff robust.
Being one, I heartily concur. Thanks!
