when are we going to get a workshop tradition and philosophy for computer science
but I understand where this sentiment comes from, believe me. we live in a corporate hellscape, where anything that can be sold immediately stops being an art and instead becomes a commodity. I've worked at many jobs where the heart and soul I pour into my work goes to waste, or is built upon disgusting foundations.
but not all art has to be corporate, and not all code needs to be, either
@SuricrasiaOnline my ideal job is "maintains machines which bulk manufacture food for several communes"
@SuricrasiaOnline this is such a huge mood
I want to think of myself as a craftsperson, but it's hard when the prevailing attitude seems to be "hahaha who knows why code does anything"
i think a culture of hating a job keeps the salaries higher. passion jobs are often devalued, similar to feminized labour.
@SuricrasiaOnline this is how i feel about computer science, and having trouble finding that in the world was a big contributor to me dropping out of the program after a couple of years :( but i've been taking this approach in slowly inching back towards it.
