_ Fractals of Change: Startup Skills: The Nerd as Plumber

At a startup you’ve got to do whatever needs to get done,” I said. But then I remembered to be tactful. “Of course at AT&T, I wouldn’t have spent the better part of an hour being an overpaid (AT&T paid more than ITXC) and underskilled plumber.”

Eloquently and humourously describes why most corporate type people just don’t get what it’s like working at/on a startup…and they probably never will ‘cos they’re corporate type people…
