There was a discussion here some years ago in which some argued that there was some sort of unquantifieable natural talent that made certain people naturally better at the job and that it wasn't just a series of skills and methods that anyone could learn if they worked hard enough at it. I don't remember offhand who it was, but I'm pretty sure it was no one who is still around post dotcom.

But what has that got to do with working in an artisan fashion vs. in an industrial fashion? Most of tech com today is done in artisan fashion. Most of the schools teach people to work in artisan fashion. To work artisan fashion simply means to do a small project by yourself from beginning to end on the desktop. Lots of people are still doing that post dotcom. Nothing to do with natural talent vs. being taught as far as I can see.

Is it simply that you are not understanding the term in the way I am using it, or do you genuinely think there is a connection here?
