Now you asked why people work in niche areas A day without a redhead is like a day without sunshine vintage shirt. I’ve worked in a lot of niche areas and still do, so let me tell you why I do it. I started off as a compiler writer. Since then I’ve done a bit of everything: web dev, visual effects, firmware for nanotech devices, databases i.e. programming DBMS software, natural language processing, bioinformatics, physics simulation, and other assorted numeric analysis-type things. This isn’t an exhaustive list. It’s fair to say that I find a lot of things very interesting. Of everything I’ve done, I like web dev the least. The web interface is the part that customers see, so there are a lot more meetings, a lot more talking with clients who aren’t technically sophisticated, a lot more dealing with incompatible web browsers, and so on. There is a certain thrill that I get from certain kinds of programming that I don’t get from web dev.
