About this Episode

    <p>We discuss compensation, particularly how people in the IT department (&quot;developers,&quot; etc.) are so disconnected from the actual business that compensating them based on business performance is near impossible. Not good if you&#39;re an IT person and like money.</p>

There's other types of comp. then money, obviously, and those are fine too. In particular, we discuss participation in open source and more recognition. But, still: money is the best.
