Janelle Brown has a review of the book NetSlaves, written by the creators of the famous web site of the same name. Even though I haven’t read the book, but I bet I can give a one sentence synopsis: There are plenty of jobs in this industry that suck, and at most companies, you’ll find a healthy number of assholes who can and will make your life miserable. Before people start feeling too sorry for themselves, they should realize that in another age, their best option for employment would have been to seek work at the local coal mine or steel mill.
