“I think that all labor is skilled labor. I think about the factories and the fields and the ways that demands for speed instead of cadence can hurt people. I think we should seek to understand and value our skills and see effort. But I don’t think we are going to fix anything about how software work is valued by refusing to let it belong to the rest of the world.”
Via Mandy a really great piece pointing out that those who make software aren't special and that we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and have jobs that do that no matter what field they're in.
