Started a long book called Coders at Work.
I started a long book that interviews famous computer programmers. Seibel, Peter. Coders at Work: Reflections on the craft of programming. (New York, NY, Apress, 2009). The first programmer interviewed is very abrupt and says, he burned out programming. There were some lessons I took from his interview so far, and I am not done. His name is Jamie Zawinski and he programmed mostly in Lisp, helped with XEmacs and also worked at Netscape and Mozilla.
