A thanksgiving rant

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

You know, to paraphrase Mrs. Seinfeld, I hate this concept like cancer. There are enough problems with the IT industry and with the people in it, do we really need to pile on by actively furthering the geek stereotype?

You wouldn't say about a plumber, "wow, that Bill! He's such a whizz with those pipes and things, get him to unclog your drain, he loves that kind of stuff!"

No. Of course not. He is a professional with a skill who wants to be paid for his work.

I've been dealing with that shit all my life, starting with "Gee, you're smart. C'mon, say something smart!"

I'm watching, cursoryily, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. What a jive-ass pile of crap. Awful lip-synching. Although that last marching band was doing some wild stuff with synchopation.
