I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

Bring up ageism and out comes it comes — it’s the one insult that’s considered socially acceptable. It’s like watching an old movie where women, blacks, Native Americans or Chinese were assumed inferior. Only it’s here and now, in 2010.

Dave Winer, who’s probably subject to more ageism than he lets on because the tech industry is particularly bad about it. I’ll be shocked if I can get a fulfilling programming job at the relatively young age of 40.
