For the past few years while I’ve been doing this acting stuff I’ve been failing miserably at finding witty and illuminating parallels between the geek and theatre worlds. But your description of code feedback is just like feedback from acting teachers, who will (generally) tell you everything you did wrong. Maybe after an initial “Hmm, not bad…” to make them sound less harsh. Their reasoning being, I think, that you *know* what you did right so you don’t need someone else to tell you.
