Great post by John, with a dead-on analogy. Here’s a snippet:
“I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine over beers back in the mid-80’s. He was trying to understand exactly what it was I did and why it paid so well. I thought for a moment and replied that we were the “priests in the temples in the Dark Ages”. We were elite because we knew how to read in an illiterate world. But one day, as technology spread, we’d be the new auto mechanics.”
This one is a must read.
