Interesting article and I sure felt good about myself after reading it, but if everybody [online] is special then no one is. Statistically there has to be at least one guy who has all kinds of side projects, reads all the books, and still sucks. I'd be curious to know what the bias is in this information set.
No! math! Yuck!
There is something to be said to being a student of your profession though and aside from the "pulled out of your ass" percentages, the assertion is spot on.
