Abstract

Some 20 years ago, when I was a systems analyst for a consulting firm in Columbus, Ohio, I began a project with a new client. Our project manager was an older man named Ken. Our task was to design a database for an organization that could be used to report on harness racing in the United States and Canada. Perhaps because he had never finished his bachelor’s degree and I was then completing a graduate degree, he chose to demonstrate the value of his many years of practical computer experience to me and thus educate me in the ways and wisdom of experienced computer professionals. He frequently spoke in homilies intended to impart his knowledge without interfering too much with my work.
