  • Let me put this another way.

    There are "puddle coat" companies that throw some sort of coat over a puddle for ladies to walk across, and there are "bridge troll" companies that identify existing bridges, stake them out, and contrive the situation such as they make a profit from the pre-existance of the bridge.

    I don't want to work for a "bridge troll" company. These companies are the hardest to stand up in and say "we offer no real service, we must do something useful" - because they don't want to provide a service. The greatest companies have techies running them: HP (before Fiona), Microsoft, Novell, etc, etc, etc. The companies with the least vision and understanding of their market have MBAs running them. Working for company with no product and no vision sucks if you're a programmer. Having to keep your trap shut about the lack of product and vision according to an agreement sucks even more.

    So, in summary, *you* can work under an NDA if you want, but I don't want to. I've already made that mistake too many times.
