"Let's kill the 'geek culture'...."
We want the 9-5 people. They're not the ones killing the job sector. We are.
We're the ones who keep coming up with "free alternatives" to the stuff that people should pay for. We're the ones that allow Mark Zuckerberg to create a bajillion dollar company, employing virtually nobody, because we'll make the widgets that make Facebook cool. We're the productive ones that let the IT companies reduce their staff without taking productivity hits. If more of us were like them, there'd be more jobs to go around..... So let's kill the "geek culture." Let's force the women in. Let's make it so that we want to leave at the end of an 8-hour day. Bring on the apathy that dominates virtually every other field out there. Let's spend more time making sure that everyone feels welcome and less time getting shit done. The shit we get done just makes more of us redundant. -- Hit Coffee » Jerk-Averse, or Geek-Averse?
