I know, right? Why do we need any new programming languages when there's already HTML?

comment Why are SW engineering interviews disproportionately difficult (vs. research interviews)?
I kind of get what you're saying. The right kind of interview should fit the right kind of job? Is that a correct interpretation?

@ Paul. Aren't you going to crow some more about how much an MS makes over a PhD?

comment Career advice: PhD in theory of programming languages
@ Paul. I'm not stupid enough to post my name. But I can say that I graduated in 2004 from a top-20 U.S. grad school with a PhD in CS. During that time, I was making $25K as a grad student. In my first job, I was making 95K, and six years later I'm making $148K. Most of my friends who graduated with an M.S. at the same time in the same field are making substantially less. My other PhD friends all across the country are at Google, Microsoft, etc. making about the same as me. Go to glassdoor.com and do some of your own damn homework.

@ Paul. You seriously need to do more investigation into this topic before you spread more misinformation. I see from your profile that you are still a grad student, so you are underqualified to answer this question. I have a CS PhD and have worked in industry as both a researcher and as a SW engineer at Major Search Engine Companies. I know plenty of colleagues with a PhD who work as product-line engineers. Lifetime earnings for a PhD also far exceed those without one. Also, there are more opportunities to get into C-level positions. Again, stop posting and spreading your bad info to others.

Someone with a CS PhD commonly make 10K-20K/year more than someone with a BS/MS. There are plenty of PhDs working as software engineers at Google, Microsoft, Adobe, Oracle, etc. Get your facts straight and enjoy earning less.
