Nice little bit of retroactive justification over at the boston globe editorial page—gen X “slackers” were actually keenly preparing for the economic contraction, “busy working on a more workable model … creating something worthwhile – a sustainable neighborhood, a tech future, a life we can manage.”  Vindication is the sweetest nectar.  And even through the hubris (granted, lip service given to “indulgences” and “frivolity”) the premise still stands.

So maybe the slackers had it right after all

OK so I promised not to bitch more about this class but…

“how many of you have access to a linux or unix machine?”
“[crickets]”
“oh… wow.”

WHAT THE FUCK? This guy expects a GE-level class full of humanities/non-majors to actually write and compile their own programs in C, after only a pretty cursory overview of it. This is the single most retarded thing i have ever seen.
