I have been doing this for a long time now, and I cannot tell you how many programming articles I have read. I have also worked with really good programmers from all over the world, so I have a good feel for speech patterns from different parts of the world. Lately, I have found myself reading articles in the voice and accent that I assume the author to have. This might be a defensive technique I have developed to maintain the technical integrity of an article in the face of (sometimes badly) broken English.
