UML is a language for modeling systems. The diagrammatic portion,
as popular as it is, is really not the essence of UML.    (02)

Diagrammatic languages and other visualization schemes appeal to a very 
large majority of humans 'cause of our outsized visual cortex, but 
ultimately visual languages very limiting. They scale very poorly, 
which is a large part of why visual programming languages have never 
gotten any traction beyond a few limited settings.    (03)
