Coding Dimensions

In coding, you have many dimensions in which you can rate code:

Now, remember, these dimensions are all in opposition to one another. You can spend three days writing a routine which is really beautiful and fast, so you've gotten two of your dimensions up, but you've spent three days, so the "time spent coding" dimension is way down.

Note: This has been copied from Wil Shipley's blog, as I think it pretty much spot on, and I like having a quick reference.
