Salvatore Iovene » Why most programmers are lousy

I wanted to pick the best example that he uses, but they are all so damn good. I guess the one I really like can essentially form a quick quiz of your CS-itude:

    1. Basically all of the programmers, or wannabe programmers, mentioned above, are miles away from the technical community. These people will totally ignore the existence of:
      Slashdot and similar
      RSS
      Usenet
      IRC (“Is that like MSN?”)
      SVN and similar

Just a really good read that I think spells it out to anyone who isn’t sure if they are in the right field or is wondering why they get so disappointed by what’s around them.
