Comment on "Some Perspective on Writing Software"
by Daniel Lyons — May 02
I agree completely and I'm also looking forward to more articles in this series.

However, as someone currently working on boring stuff for too little money and with too much stress, I'm having a hard time seeing how to get from where I am to where I want to be. Nine out of ten job openings are doing similarly boring things to what I'm doing now. A friend and I are trying to start a company, but all the interesting niches seem taken, and obviously that will only increase the stress and reduce the money even further.

Without getting too personal I'm sure you won't be able to deliver useful advice. But in a market glutted with degreed, intelligent programmers, I just don't see how we are supposed to achieve the dream of interesting work, high salaries and distant deadlines.
