Once upon a time I would have killed to work at a FAANG company.

Not I don't want to, for a myriad of reasons, but that desire to "work somewhere that's considered 'an company'" still remains. And I'm glad I can identify that.

What's the point of programming (as a career) if I can't help people?

"What do you want to do for a living" as a question pales in comparison to "*why* do you want to do for a living"

@somarasu I'm reading this book "The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster" by Darren Hardy because I want to start my own creative commons + open-source media company.

In the first chapter, he talks a lot about the sentiment you made here.

Beyond that, he says (in a nutshell) we have to "find our fight" and one way we can do that (I am) is to look at what pisses us off and figure out how our skills can help fight it.

Anyway, I bring this up because I think what you tooted above is really important and more people need to hear it.
