In the mind of a weekend hacker run a few thoughts too many:
There are some things I cant change even though I wish I could change them because quite clearly I would make a tonne of money more.
Trusting the instincts of others to go north when my instincts tell me to go south. Keeping my mouth and my bloggy fingers shut for things I think I are dishonest. Hanging out with people I wont really like or respect any more. Stop writing technical books and start making more products to mmm sell more soap stars.
I cant change that at all. What can I change? Oh that. Someday I am going to write a piece of code, nothing big , just a few k lines to make the change.
I can change the world by writing a beautiful piece of code.
