It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

Academics and QA

Did you even know what I meant by QA? If not, I'd venture you are an academic.

I love the Neal Stephenson quote from Dethe Elza's comment:
“In order to set her straight, I had to let her know that the reason she’d never heard of me was because I was famous. ”
Much as I favor openness, it's amazing how many people confused my sticking my neck out about having more respect for people outside the academy, in particular with regard to software quality assurance, as being about "openness".
