So, who do you think does all the innovation? "Slave Overseer" MBAs? Or the geeks?
First off, Jody Sanders, I am declining your $10,000. Why? Because you, and the rest of the iPhone unlock sites out there are scum. You make money selling freeware; that's not cool, and I am in no way going to legitimize it.[From On the iPhone: An Information Campaign]
Everyone should read this blog entry if they want to know how the current 'software industry' works and how dependent the MBA 'overseers' are on the slumdogs to produce SOMETHING. And how slimy these 'freelance' and 'venture vc project sites' are about dealing with the geeks and bamboozling users.
This is why you see so many 'software projects' out there hanging for weeks on end. They either do not have developers, nobody wants to touch it, and some guys would rather work for free. Like the blackra1n guy.
Everyone should give this guy a lot of respect. And your Lucre if you're using his jailbreak, as respect does not pay the bills.
To apply this to the software industry at large change 'iPhone unlock site' to 'MBA with somewhat vague job title that really means slumdog overseer.' The same 'something for nothing' mentality is present in both cases.
