Its been a while since I read Paul Graham. I read his essay on How To Do Philosophy and passed it along to Jaimer, because she is loving logic in school right now. I then looked to see what else he had written that I had missed... Gee, guess its been a while, there is quite a bit. But I read Holding a Program in Ones Head because it looked similar to Great Hackers. As always, he gets it:
The weakest point in big companies is that they don't let individual programmers do great work.
Good programmers manage to get a lot done anyway. But often it requires practically an act of rebellion against the organizations that employ them.
How true... I'm feeling that a lot lately.
