I think I've seen most of these before, but the force of the collection as
a whole is impressive.

What particularly interests me is the difference between working for
pleasure and profit.  The confirmation of my own feelings is reassuring
(but perhaps means I am overinterpreting things here...), but what I don't
understand is why various bosses I have had through the years don't seem
to "get" the distinction.  Is it because I am particularly extreme, or do
people make suggestions for other people that they themselves would not
consider acceptable?  (both, I suspect).  In particular combining "play"
(free software) with work is very hard.
