I Had a Great Meeting

4 Dec 2008 /

I had a great meeting today — eight women plus myself.

That’s not why it was great though.

These ladies want to launch an online Education Room with webinars, a speaker directory, announcements of upcoming events . . . they have none of the content ready . . . and they want to launch it on Jan. 1, 2009.

So instead of talking about how they’re planning to get the content to me so I can build the thing, they’re saying things like, “When you hover over a webinar link, it will display a description of the content — like on Netflix . . .”

Netflix. Right. So I say, “You’re not gonna get that.”

Oh, they loved it! They laughed and laughed. They knew it was ridiculous, they just wanted someone to tell them it was ridiculous.

Women love a masterful man who’s good at his work.

Thus spoke The Programmer.
