I for one am a cat person and subscribe to the notion that there can never be too many cute kittens on the web. Since the lolcat or “cat macro” phenomenon combines cats and language, what’s not to love about it? Add a programming angle, and you get LOLCODE, an entirely new programming language (which has already spawned an Eclipse plug-in, for instance).

However, on behalf of the software localization community I have to ask:

Where is the internationalization support??

We need the ability to externalize and translate the text in code like this:

HAI

CAN HAS STDIO?

VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"

KTHXBYE

A modern programming language really can’t afford to not include i18n and l10n as part of the basic architecture, you know 🙂
