About Low Tech

What's the difference between High Tech and Low Tech? One competent I.T. manager. Or in nerd format:
lowTech + mgrWithABrain = highTech

The Manager's Tech Adoption Plan
1. That's ridiculous! It can't work!
2. Hmmm. Everyone else is doing it.
3. Here's $7 trillion. Try it.
4. It doesn't work. Blame the devs.
5. Get acquired. Update LunkedIn.

The Maker's Tech Adoption Plan
1. We've needed that for years!
2. Let's get it. Let's make it work.
3. Read comics & go to Happy Hour.

Getting successful in tech goes way beyond ones and zeros. Adopting a mindset > adopting a tech. So forget about kanban, middleware, & digital transformation. Read this book!

About Eddiots

This is a work of fiction inspired by real events I witnessed, endured, or instigated.

Every character and company is a composite of real people and places from my work life. I just changed the names to protect the incompetent.

Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or businesses, active or bankrupt, is either coincidental or unavoidable because these eddiots are everywhere!

Thanks to all you bossholes, players, liars, fakers, slackers, posers, jerks, cheaters, and producers of endless technical debt. I used to hate you but now I love you because I need no imagination. I just share forward the suffering you shared with me.

About Eddie Ottic

Eddie Ottic has written 2 million lines of code for 94 firms in 50 years. There's a good chance something you own was built with his software.

He loves coding but hates going to work. Everywhere he's ever been had sufficient tech. None had sufficient management but plenty of bossholes.

When he says this, he's "not a team player". But when his comics say the same thing, others listen, laugh, and learn the inside truths no one else teaches. That's why he built eddiots.

He's a fair writer, a lousy artist, and a lazy developer. But combining them makes the magic vector art about his long I.T. incarceration. Read it, learn something, and most of all, have fun!
