I don't care what Jon says... he's crazy! ;)

Oh boy, war on: "if you work for Google, you're going to be concerned with how to make your applications run against huge data sets using large, unreliable computer clusters. "

The paragraph "Computer Programming: A Field, Not A Job Description" sums it up nicely. I loved reading this, but Jon's opinion didn't stop me from looking up some of those interview questions ;)

define: programmer? then define developer and last code monkey? Is it like Dork ->Nerd ->Geek? :D
