Once upon a time, a puppeteer who liked computers decided he would
try to combine the two, which led him to faraway lands and to camps
of people trying to do this, albeit unsuccessfully. Like an angel
cast down from some lofty place, he landed into a purgatory of
proto-Internet companies, where Data-Slaves had to keep
pipelines stoked full of raw logs, which turned into Numbers.
Upper Managers were under pressure for these Numbers to Grow, for if they did not,
they had to be Recounted (more work for the Data-Slaves). It was
here that he learned the Ancient language of PERL, rose up from mere Data-Slave
to Data Manager, Data Engineer, and finally Research Engineer. With his
new found power, he left this land for one of B2C, where a Great Myth
had overtaken the Employed People into believing that outsider, Netizen people would
become addicted to seeking information, so much so that they would ravenously
click on Banners to Buy things, and this Revenue would overfloweth.
It was here that he became Software Engineer, building Things Never To Be Used.
After this land imploded in its own decadence and short-sightedness, he and another refugee
(ton) escaped to the Moon. Tune in for further adventures.
