Software development and the study of human aspiration

Though the technical aspects are a source of joy for me in software development, the human aspects are no less fascinating. The practice of making software provides some unique insights into human psychology, because software is pretty much made of pure thought, and because software is intertwined in so many human activities. Software developers often get a very detailed look at what people do or where they expect to go in their lives through the ongoing development of a project or their requirements for a new project. That’s pretty cool, when you think about it.

Maybe some day I’ll be able to add to my resume that I have great expertise in understanding and eliciting people’s aspirations.
