CutFromAbove
A funny, cynical look at management in technology firms. The author does seem quite happy with himself at times, and his somewhat sour mood makes it a bit slow reading at times. The last bits regarding the internet seem pasted on, and there are points where the parody if reality seems to be stretched a bit far, but then, I've never worked as an Engineer.
Dave Peticolas

The laws of technological hierarchy, pseudonymously distilled for our pleasure.
