The pinhead

Talking with J. the other day, about the vexing question of why anyone would _choose_ to be an engineering manager (like I am, and like she has recently become), and was reminded of the joke we used to make:

If you’re in a technical company of any size, you have only two options:

1) Work for a pinhead, or
2) *BE* the pinhead

A few years ago I decided to BE the pinhead, and never looked back. 🙂
