Geist3 (660726) writes "Forbes has an article by Venkatesh Rao
asserting that these days the safest investment for both corporations and individuals is in software developers. Throwing money at talented coders now — even on random projects — will build relationships that are likely to pay off big in the future. "In what follows, I am deliberately going to talk about the developers like they are products in a meat market. For practical purposes, they are, since the vast majority of them haven't found a way to use their own scarcity to their advantage.""

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
