Programming's Dirtiest Secret

Stevey has up a brilliant rant about developers and touch typing. But touch typing ability (or lack thereof) isn't really the dirtiest secret about programming. Even though I can touch type, I am going to use a lot fewer words than Stevey did. Ready?

People are, on average, pretty darn average. Developers are no exception.

In most endeavors average is pretty bad. Software development is no exception.

Telling the difference between an average developer and a great one in an interview is really hard.
