Fun in IT of old...compared to what it has become today

I really enjoyed this article and just had to share it. At eWeek they are running the article "How to Stop the Dilbertization of IT" and in this article it gives a little insight in how the IT field has changed and what we need to do in order to bring back some of the fun in IT.

I personally remember the days of BBS' and how you actually had to work in order to get on to some of these boards. I still have my notebook that is full of numbers to various boards around the world and how you had to have some phone phreaking skills to get around long distance charges. The days when working in a support team was actually something to look forward was fun and that has been lost in so many ways in todays field.
