I'm proposing the concept of a **Kolmogorov Quotient** (named after AndreKolmogorov of AlgorithmicInformationTheory fame) as a calculable number that measures the amount that a "programming language" simplifies the complex. That is, the amount of *expressivity* of a programming language. This idea of "simplification" is a factor of text-wise reduction (fewer characters needed to express a complex concept) and some other less-easy to quantify concept of **maintainability**. Fleshing out this latter concept, it is clear it has to do with the ease of establishing programmer ''consensus'' for the same task.

It is a *quotient* so that higher Kolmogorov numbers for a given language implies a reduction in the Complexity of writing the code to solve the problem.

I suggest Python or Ruby has the highest Kolmogorov Quotient. But see KolmogorovQuotient.
