“Eli the Computer Guy” has a two-hour video on “Death of the IT Profession.”
Indeed, he recalls the days of 56K modems, T1 lines, and family computers – and I guess mainframe culture, even batch cycles and being on-call at night.
Maybe voluntary certifications from vendors weren't enough. Brainbench tried. But in my second act of life, if someone asked me "What is your profession?" (like in a screenplay) I'd be put on the spot.
How do you get a YouTube video this long to load?
