Innovation Through Laziness

I started programming because I don’t like working.  So I would create scripts to automate the tasks with which I was charged.  It wasn’t long before I had enough free time to see what my coworkers were doing in their jobs.  I am so lazy, I don’t like other people around me to have to work either.  So I’d make scripts for them.  Then I began making the scripts communicate with each other.  And thus my first full-on program was born and my job became to administer it.

My grandfather once asked me if I thought that one day I could be replaced by a machine.  My answer was, “I sincerely hope so”.
