Y'all owe it to yourself to get old Fred Moody's "I Sing the Body
Electronic" all about the drive to build a kid's encyclopedia at Microsoft,
during the time that WinHelp and Viewer were evolving. This is a
paraphrtase, but it's always worked for me:

"Tech writers are all female, live in lofts, and wear found objects in their
ears."
"Programmers are all male, eat junk food, and never talk except to say, 'not
true'."

Like, attitude is * all *, dig?
