Disillusioned With IT?

ninthwave I second that emotion (1027 comments)

Technological fields generally degrade when the mainstream accepts more and more tech. The excitement and the value of the job depletes quickly. I love technology for the contact with the mathematics and the sciences, I have been lucky enough to work with people involved in other scientific endeavors that have let IT be rewarding for me. Alas the last 3 years I have been disillusioned with my job opportunities and my current position. So I decided to get my masters and teach. I want to do math from now until I croak. But that it is me. I don't think the disillusionment will go away anytime soon especially with the economic changes coming about.
