Awesome! Have a great vacation!
Perfect! Especially the Developer and Architect type. Hits close to home.
(apologies for this contentless comment)
Dharmesh is doing the "Strategy Type" thinking on Nantucket Island now :-)
Venture Capital Type: We're going to bring in someone new to direct the changing of that light bulb. Oh, and we will also be absorbing 70% of the light from the new bulb.
in bad taste, not my idea of humour, no point made
...i think i'll have to push reading onstartups.com to evening session instead of my usual practice of making it the first thing to read in the morning.
also, you seem to have some persoanl problem with ROR! I liked the post where you discussed your thoughts on ROR but you seem to be making unrequired references to it in a lot of posts since then...that makes me reevaluate if the initial post was too biased or what.
Dheeraj: Though you may not have found this funny, I have a hard time seeing why this would be in bad taste. But, too each their own.
I don't expect anyone to make OnStartups.com to be the first thing they read in the morning -- it's hardly worth that.
Sorry for disappointing you. As is the case with any initiative, it's impossible to please all of the people.
Well I thought it was hilarious. Let's have a few more like this, I bet it will bring in more people as well as brighen my day.
Except for the shocking, blasphemous allegations that Python (which I've been evangelising for 12 straight years as the One True Way) is 4 times less productive that RoR! What, delimiters coming back into fashion? Dheeraj, don't you realise what good subliminal PR this is for Ruby?
Good Stuff! Gave me a good laugh.
Sysadmin type: I already changed it while the rest of you were busy arguing about it.
Heh! Thanks for this. As a pennyless startup orchestra-man myself, it was scary, but funny, to see myself in each of those roles. How bittersweet are our own reflections... :)
The Strategy one was probably the best. Didn't much get the last 4 sentences from the Software Architect type... guess that's not my strong area.
If we build out that wiki feature we've always been talking about, it shouldn't take any employees at all -- the users will change the light bulbs for us!
