Yep. This pretty much describes my career. Progress is the result of a lazy man finding an easier way of doing things.

would be better and more geeky if time (t) were on X.

It’s missing the point where the geek begs for appreciation, installs the script for the non-geek and cares for the maintenance. Geeks are technical winners, non-geeks are business winners.

Doesn’t only apply to geeks, applies to anyone with an ounce of efficient foresight.

When I first saw this a few weeks ago, I loved it. Then I realized it has a critical flaw: As soon as the geek has written the script, his or her “time spent” will likely drop to almost zero. (At least for a true geek that writes a good script).
So, actually, the geek wins at bit after the point of “runs script” because at that point the red line should be hugging the x axis. 🙂

The y axis shows the cumulated time spent.

You are not geek, that’s for sure 🙂

Thanks made my day 🙂

The Geek looses. Management eventually realizes it can automate his job.

True as long as the task at hand doesn’t change….

It seems like the non-geek only loses due to spending more time than he spent on the original task mocking the geek’s complicated method…
Moral: geeks and non-geeks don’t mix?

Don’t understand win and lose concept…unless its a race
may be fast and slow sounds apprpriate…

Lol, the lazy man. I’d say the efficient woman. Or man. 😉

Manager asks geek to document process. The longer the geek takes to document, the longer the geek keeps his job.

Non-geek has moved onto something else more important and more interesting whilst the the geek gets his/her kicks out of scripting… they both win!

Management eventually realizes it can automate geek’s job; geek goes on to automate jobs for management at lots of other companies with the same problem.

haa! good one! but the non-geeks will catch up as the software gets smarter. Just check out http://proteg.ee/mentor to get the idea.
