I Have Become My Work
Talking to a customer this morning, he told me about an IT meeting he had been in where several of the attendees were unfamiliar with the technical details of the project he is implementing. (My product is a tool that he is using on his project.) He and the others that I have contact with kept saying things like, "Okay, we'll have Darcy do that," and finally one of the other folks asks, "What is this DARCY system that is doing all this stuff?" leading to comments about HAL and whatnot... So I'm not just a programmer any more, I'm a whole system!!
[Hm. I noticed I don't have a Work category. Mostly I guess my work isn't bloggable....]
