RT @email@example.com: Lately, I've been talking about how monopolization in the tech sector has been attended in a rise of defensive legal tools to prevent new competitors from "disrupting" the firms that gained dominance through disruption (the golden age for pirates who become admirals)
I'm a web developer.
I was at a happy hour with colleagues, and noticed that I was the only one in my age range (mid-40s) who was still a developer. Everyone else went into management, or something else.
As I'm getting older, I realize I could never do anything else. If I go too long without coding, I get cranky. Also, if a meeting is boring at all, I can't pay attention. Managers have to do that all day.
Anybody else into coding for the long haul? How did you do it? Any regrets?

Is that fair?
