So, by analogy, the photon doesn’t go through both slits. No, it jumps like crazy all over the place, from one side to the other. Sometimes it goes through one slit, sometimes through the other.

It visits some places more frequently and they are lighter in the picture, and due to wave interference those lighter places form patterns.

I'd wish quantum physics ended up with this kind of intuitive explanation, with particle actually being in one place at any given time.

This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.

"FWIW, my experience matches Fowler's claims perfectly. Designing a microservices architecture is harder than a monolithic one because it is much harder to refactor when you find that you've made mistakes. And you always make mistakes. Therefore there is real value in prototyping a monolithic system, no matter what you plan on winding up with.
Furthermore services versus monolithic is hardly a new debate. I would suggest reading and understanding Linus' comments on microkernels versus monolithic kernels at http://yarchive.net/comp/microkernels.html. Pretty much everything he says applies to microservices versus a monolithic stack. With the exception that microservices allows one to parallelize complex stuff across multiple machines for better scalability. So it is the only real option for some use cases."
