I can’t help feeling nostalgic for the good old days before our thing went mainstream.

Price of success I suppose, but now we have proclamations like “The world belongs to people who code. Those who don’t understand will be left behind”. Another example in a daily stream of hyperbolic mass media reports, reminding us yet again that ‘software is eating the world’.

I have to say I preferred when the whole thing was regarded more as an exciting hobby – mostly by and for those who took the time to study the craft – than a world dominating force. This article may have value, but in those days you knew you were free of the grand statements. Money backs this new world, not code.
