Ask Slashdot: Joining a Startup As an Older Programmer?

IV-Swamp In my experience in that situation... (274 comments)

They all knew I had a family and could not experience all the single-guy-out-on-the-town stuff. I instead, genuinely, showed interest in hearing about their antics, which they enjoyed sharing with me. I also kept up on all the newest techniques and news of the languages and frameworks we used. Thus instead of "old guy" I became the quasi guru. Having a beard helps.

IV-Swamp Lee Majors is spinning in his grave. (89 comments)

For shame USA. Our 70's TV future predictions are not panning out. Looks like the first Bionic Man/Woman will be saying cheesy things like "G'day".

IV-Swamp I wouldn't buy a book from a Nazi either. (507 comments)

I wouldn't buy a book from a Neo-Nazi either, no matter how good it is. At least you know with "Mein Kampf" Hitler is not getting any of the proceeds from sales.
