Mediasparkles reported on a USA Today article about the death of the American Programmer. I’d rather not exclude this to America, though, as I’ve heard other countries being affected in various ways. For the purpose of this blog post, the question I pose applies to everyone, regardless of your country.
Her blog entry is neat because she asks the question of what your alternative career might be. Fun exercise!
I’m all over the map (paramilitary performing clandestine/covert operations, US Senator, Art Director at a design studio (i own) in India, etc).
If you couldn’t use a computer as your primary career choice, what would be your 2nd?
Example: DJ instead of a ColdFusion programmer (not ColdFusion programmer instead of Flash programmer… that still uses computers, see?), or Social Psychologist instead of Information Architect.
