The frankest, most raw and truthful observations about employment and work life in the IT and engineering fields are in "members only" sections that are ONLY visible when you are registered and you log in.

If you're 35 or over, and work in IT, or are retired from IT, and you dislike the herd mentality and clueless, adolescent snobbery of forums such as "Hacker News", then you really should join this board. Why? Because you're too smart for Facebook. And everyone needs someone to gossip, commisserate, and chat with at their level.

  • Developers and programmers
  • Freelancers and "gig" entrepreneurs

  • Web developers
  • Inventors

This forum has its roots in the 1990s buildup of the IT field into what we know today and has been around since 2002. 10s of thousands of messages and threads about a variety of career, FTE, contract, and side gig issues and opportunities.

If you're as smart as the typical experienced IT professional, you have a critical mind that has a hard time staying engaged with pop culture and generic issues of the day. And you're WELL beyond the fanboy mentality of the young developer communities. Get some relief here.

Getting old means your son has an instagram account and you have no idea what Instagram is.

Or snapchat.

I think I can make it for another 44 years without it.

Brawndo. It's got what plants crave.

You (and a few others here) really need to make the effort to stay informed.

Sometimes this place feels like an outpost of 1993.

Now, Instagram is picture based social media and is mainly for retards and narcissists.

And Snapchat is an instant messenger that is picture based, and the pictures allegedly expire (are removed from the system) in a short time frame like a minute or less once viewed.

There, you're up to date... not.

Yeah really.  ;D

My extensive cross-cultural knowledge of and insight into popular internet culture is a testament to two things: one, an ADD like compulsion to learn out of sheer boredom.

Two, probably systemic immaturity on my part.  :o  :P  I wish I were 25 or so and knew (and understood) the shit that I know now. Seriously. Also a compulsion to be part of a "scene" without really partaking, or something.

Instagram is where the hot women like to post selfies of themselves.

That would be mildly redeeming.

Instagram is also where rich assholes post envy photos of their cars and possessions.

Basically, Instagram is the raw version of everything pathological about the human spirit.

http://stylecaster.com/hottest-women-on-instagram/

This is just a sample that I got from typing in "hottest women on instagram".

What blows me away is the number of followers. Some of them have followers in the MILLIONS.

I see almost ALL social media follows and likes of public figures as a transfer of your dignity and power as a person. You're basically saying "I bow in your direction and you are important enough for me to interrupt my day and otherwise give you my attention."

I am worthwhile and it's rare that I get supposed peer *friend's* attention.

I'll be Goddamned if I'm going to give someone with all kinds of public attention my own head space.

I'll make my own private bookmark of such content so that nobody can use my like or follow information to bolster the spoiled social media celebrity's ego.

I'm not on Instagram, but I look at some things on it.  Mainly home decorating stuff and DIY solutions that people came up with for old houses.  I have no desire to post anything myself.  Just looking.
