sometimes I wish that computer science followed an apprenticeship model where a wiser mentor teaches you best practises. actually useful things like "here is how you run an open source project without being an ass" or "here is how to clean the scroll wheel of your mouse"

when are we going to get a workshop tradition and philosophy for computer science

wouldn't it be cool if computer scientists were as proud of their craft and always strived toward perfecting their art like woodworkers

did you know woodworkers are proud of their kludges to fix broken pieces or blemishes?

i think a culture of hating a job keeps the salaries higher. passion jobs are often devalued, similar to feminized labour.
