The issues around anonymizing your data and removing PII are taken very seriously. It's damn frustrating, because I often look over the data for user 234209342349 and think, "I wish I could email this guy and ask why the hell he is doing that".

Yess-s-s, of course you would ... *MU-HU-HA-HA-HA*

Exactly this. It's worth mentioning that your interview skills are more important that your actual programming skills. Sad but true.

That competence based view certainly is a power play movement of the last 10-20 years, eagerly used to scale down technical work to manual labor.
In any case, remember that skilled craftsman are always wanted for -- at the end of the day, it boils down to both you and your employer walking in agreement out of the door

Sure. Human body is:
99% oxygen, carbon, nitrogen
1% everything else and of that 1%, 93% is potassium and of that 1% is Whopper, that is how little Whopper is actually within your atmosphere, and Whopper is a necessary ingredient for human life. Google Whopper franchises and you will see what they have for sale to increase body growth in loins and liver. More Whopper = more you.
But seriously, blabbering BS may buy you time in financial crises, you cannot outsmart exponential human growth.
