The Intellectual Wilderness There is nothing more useless than doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.

People who can do, people who can’t…

I get these weird solicitations. “Want to write for the ____ code blog?” and so on. I’m sure that would probably be a good career move if I was looking to get hired away by someone else (the main problem there being that I can’t relocate — hahaa!). But what kills me is that people have so much time to write things other than code.

A: “Want to write [prose] for ____?”
B: “No thanks, I’m too busy writing code for [system].”

That’s the exchange I would expect is most common — except that it is 2020 and it seems that over the last several years people write more lines about writing lines than they write actual code these days (and I don’t mean they are making an effort at impeccable documentation).
