I'm some guy who's liked -- loved, adored -- computers since he was a kid. I was a teenager in the early-mid seventies
Roundabout the mid-nineties, when email was becoming a commonplace and the World Wide Web was taking off, I thought:
Finally -- it's about time
Well, the Golden Age of the Nineties had to end. With the coming of twenty-first century globalization, my former lucrative career as a freelance programmer has seriously dried up. I still manage to make part of my living as a coder -- which is a good thing, I love coding for it's own sake, love it like a novelist loves writing novels. But it looks like the party is mostly over, chances are if I want to stay in the IT game, I'll end up writing specs and outsource the work to India.
I like irony, really I do. It's much better than a world without irony. Irony is funny plus sad in one pill. Only problem is, I forget whether it's the blue pill or the red pill
