Today’s Weekly Show is a part two of our AMA (Ask Me Anything) series. Greg and Ethan recently solicited listener questions, and here’s the second round.
This episode explores work issues, including what certifications will be relevant in the next five to ten years, the pros and cons of being a specialist vs. a jack of all trades, how to deal with incompetent coworkers, and whether you can ever feel good enough at your job.
Listeners also asked about the Packet Pushers organization, why we don’t spend a lot of time on service providers, whether the Packet Pushers will ever formally recommend vendors or products (we won’t), and what kind of content listeners can expect in the future.
And because it’s the Packet Pushers, there are a few detailed technical questions, and one about whether Greg and Ethan would prefer to fight one horse-sized duck or a thousand duck-sized horses. I’m not sure why that one’s relevant, but we did say “ask us anything,” and so you did.
