my neighbor and i talked about unions yesterday. he, a teacher at a local high school, asked, "are there any programmer unions? why not?"

"it's a long story. to make it short: is it so surprising that a discipline deployed primarily to disenfranchise labor would struggle to enfranchise itself?"

he laughed.

"the long version of that story is a tome about computer science education and the hacker mythos."
