I'm stating the obvious, but Mr. Lanier has to make bold
statements like that to sell himself and get to stay k001.
However, I think the point that can be gotten is that we have
programmers fresh out of school doing the majority of
program design while the experienced ones are being managers.
And being management these days seems to be mainly
political battles. Why do it then, $$$ or power. And good
programmers rarely make good managers. So the shame
is not in Computer Science, but the way business is set up
now. If it doesn't produce a press release, it's not worth
Maybe I should go take an anti-cynical pill
