    To the extent the sock-and-birkenstock crowd (or is it khakis and belt holsters?) can come to understand this they're going to be better off. No one gives a fuck about a degree, and it's not going to save you when they fully commoditize the admin and systems engineering fields (perhaps a way off, right?). Whoever doesn't understand this will stay in the pot. Those that don't will move on and adapt, but this superiority bullshit is a self fulfilling prophecy of doom. It's like this article I saw regarding some "tech wiccans" in the bay who have delusions that they're effect on the world is much more significant than it is. Stay in your bubble (pot) and you're hosed. This isn't about a superior understanding. It's about your transformation into and ever more replaceable cog that represents a unit of profit on revenue.

    I'm in software, but it doesn't matter. I am not eligible from what I understand. I work soul crushing hours, weekends, and valuable moments of my life are stolen from me by corporations that own the politicians who are writing this legislation. It's a sad state of affairs when you've deluded yourself into a false sense of superiority that will ultimately be your undoing.

    Soon, it will be game over.

    Slap happy is a platform.
