Boy: I want to draw a door for my house drawing...
Teacher: Google it..
Boy: I found it. house-door.jpg. It seems popular. A lot of stars.
Teacher: download it, cut and paste to your paper.
Boy:Can I draw it myself?
Teacher: yes.. but this is easier, isn't it? Don't reinvent the wheel.
Boy: but, this door does not match with my french window.
Teacher: oh, integrate french windows with door? Try to search house-door-french-window.jpg. maybe someone already did something like that?

    Is there a subject called as "Google search"? 😂

    Seems good to me. People need to stop producing the same thing over and over again.

    @Pavr Yet, optimization for your particular case is always good. :D

    I'm surprised how many people can't use Google... In the past people went to libraries. Like physical libraries! How amazing and much harder is that?!

    @Alice it's not a copyright violation because it is for educational use.

    @Pavr I disagree.

    Almost all existing implementations for all conceivable problems are flawed in some way.

    Evolution has proved for millions of years that reiterations with small adjustments is a great way to optimize for specific use cases. Repeatedly reusing from the same pool is called inbreeding.

    "Don't reinvent the wheel" is a dangerous platitude. Please go build a new ORM (all existing ones suck), create a new blogging system, even write your own encryption!

    Reinventing the wheel increases your understanding of subjects.

    Of course you shouldn't use your home-built oval glass wheel in production right away... But now that you are a wheel builder, at least you have a basis for comparison, and can judge that industry standard wheel with the eyes of an expert.
