The original article is so annoying. Nasty nationalized stereotypes trying to make people think you have to either be sloppy or conformist. My designs are beautiful, elegant creations. They rarely follow any kind of "organizational development process" (except that I do MAKE a plan, though it only loosely gets followed: that's the idea) or "coding standards" (except in security, readability, and maintenance). I'm definitely not a hacker, but I'm not some half-dead brainwashed programming drone, either. Thank God.
Your writeup provides nice simple dichotomy with direct correlations and some minor humor, no hacking or cowboy shooting needed. And you don't seem terribly at risk for being accused of conforming to organizational development processes and coding standards, either. Cheers to you, particularly for the typos!
(ftr, it's true that I'm unemployable by most of the nasty corporations, being self-educated and kicked out of school for my non-cowboy, non-indian points of view. I don't really mind, as I still get paid enough by my lovely corporation to live by. At least til the project's done...)
