So much technology, so little science. So much politics, so little engineering. That's slashdot for you - it's the cultural aspects of a very logic-ridden community. A little piece about a programmer, even a fool corporate whore programmer who stands for ridiculous anti-programming principles, is appreciated by this little one, at least.
Working at home takes energy you could be giving to the Corp. If you insist on working on your off-time, at least work on a side-project for your own job like a person who truly appreciates his job. No more of this dilly dallying making social networks, video games, and suspicious network tunnels at home; optimize Billy Joel's three-year-old equipment maintenance prediction system, written in ASP! What, you don't like ASP? Fuck, you must be one of those kids who learned to program when he was 3 and always thought he was better than Inc's trained monkeys, just because he knew how a for loop works! The arrogance, the boastfullness, the lack of respect for proper tried and true authority is simply outstanding!
.... so, that's why.
or he could be making his own scenery

If it's not first-person then you're watching someone else, not seeing through their eyes. That's not going to be immersive. Stupid question.

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...)
