You do you

I’m a little tired and depressed this week. However, this was a very inspiring speech Neil Gaiman gave to new grads of an art school:

Neil Gaiman Addresses the University of the Arts Class of 2012 from The University of the Arts (Phl) on Vimeo.

I think that his point about doing what you love, regardless of the money, holds doubly true for programmers. We are extremely lucky in that, unlike artists, we can make an okay salary nearly anywhere. We might as well work on things that make us happy.
