The shoots and ladders of technology

Every opinion looks better with a graph and no graph has captured my experience of working in software more than this.

The most fun part of working in tech is working in some niche that’s climbing the Peak of Inflated Expectations. The inevitable Trough always comes, but there’s a kind of doublethink that techies have that pretends this isn’t the case. I believe this is instinct comes from the same self-preservation skill that allows us not to dwell too long upon our own impending mortalities.

In a small scale, I’m looking forward to the popcap war game Plants vs. Zombies which appears tomorrow.
