I Am Not The Smartest Person In The Room
Jon Westenberg 🌈

I’ve seen the same kinds of arrogant assholes in IT, who in turn answer to arrogant MBA assholes — all of whom profit from the hard work of the legions of tech people doing the really smart work, who help make these same assholes money. And yes, suffering the same arrogant condescension when the people doing the work try to suggest improvements and changes. These assholes were epitomized in the character Lumberg in the movie “Office Space”. It’s all part of the devaluation of labor, when labor is seen nothing more than a cost that must be eliminated no matter the damage to real people.
