      Except that it is the Emperor's New Clothing. They have to believe
      we're selling something or we don't get paid. Software is the perfect
      thing to be selling, because no one is quite sure what it is (The
      magical stuff that the internet is made from.) And, everyone already
      expects us to fail (After all it's /really hard/.)

      I'm being cynical, and you don't have to join me. On the other hand,
      cynics are people who have seen how screwed up the world can be.
