From my new essay:
This is Shlomi Fish, a good hacker, where hacker is a good enthusiastic programmer, not necessarily a computer intruder. And I have an announcement to make: I refuse to be an IT slave. Moreover: if you want to employ people like me (and you do), you should not give us only good conditions - you should give us exceptional ones [= conditions]. Otherwise, we'll probably leave, or be fired, much to your misfortune.
More about it in my new essay "The End of Info-Tech Slavery".
