I completely agree...

However, I really don't care what most Humans think. I have a large library of military history and technology books. And it is still expanding and I try to do some reading just about everyday, in addition to my research into current world events.

I spent a large part of my career as a software engineer fighting against stupid, arrogant technical management.

And when I had the opportunities to enter their ranks, I refused.

After 43+ years in the career I retired but am still at it doing database development, learning game design and Game AI. And I have decided to ignore most of the new fads and hype around all the new technologies being released. Most of it is junk anyway.

Look at the complete gibberish that Microsoft has turned ASP.NET Core into. We were doing basically the same things with WebForms but then the "purists" got involved. Now Microsoft web development is a complete mess. Eve professionals here at The Code project have been complaining about this for several years now.

The moment our best professionals start to listen to what other "stupid" people say or think, our profession will be finished. The problem is, it already looks as if it is...
