I think the Golden Age was over before 1995. By then private offices had mostly disappeared, we had recurring meetings. now software is all about methodologies and unit tests.

I love the work but I hate the industry. I loved the early days at Microsoft but I would not work for them now. I have a friend who does real estate in Redmond, has a lot of MS clients, she says nobody likes working there anymore.

I've been a developer since 1988.
