I found a link to this rant about the misery of working in the IT industry over at Genehack. It’s great stuff. There are plenty of people working in programming who are just as bad as the “bad geeks” in IT that the author describes. (I do find more smallminded provincialism in IT than in programming, though.) When I interview a candidate, I really have only one thing in mind: is this person a good geek? I’ve been pretty successful so far.
