If Hemingway Wrote JavaScript
Twitter’s Angus Croll imagines what Hemingway, Shakespeare, Breton, Bolano and Dickens would do with JavaScript.
On Hemingway (screenshot above) he writes:

No surprises here. Code reduced to its essentials with no word or variable wasted. It’s not fancy; maybe its even a little pedantic - but that’s the beauty of Hemingway’s writing. No need for elaborate logic or clever variable names. It’s plain and its clear and it does what it has to - and nothing more.

The goal of the script is to create a Fibonacci series (a string of numbers where each number is the sum of the two that precede it).
