It must be important if every state and various countries want it. SORRY.

SF would love to have Hollywood buddy.

I know it hurts you deeply because you're so insecure, but there's help for that sort of stuff.
Hahaha first you talk about how hard it is to be a huge star like no other industry is hard( how ridiculous) and then you ask what is prestigious about programming.

Dont get mad because you got bodyslammed in return. LOL.

Bill Gates, richest man on planet earth, started out coding.

Again, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs don't represent the working programmers, coders, engineers in the slightest. And they're more businessman than programmers anyway.

I didn't bring up Spielberg, cause he doesnt represent most directors.

It's common sense. Maybe you've heard of it.

Or maybe you haven't, Colin.

I never said anything about the STARS, smart guy. You and dirtypirate can't seem to read between the lines. I have to spell it out like I'm talking to little chldren.

I know and worked with Engineers. They don't think it's that difficult or amazing. It's just a job, like most professions are.

It truly is amazing how automotive R&D has systemstically migrated out of Los Angeles but then has found it's way to the Bay Area, they want to be on the cusp of the future, clearly.

You asked about programming and prestige, and it blew up in yer face. Get over it.

Lol

You mentioned two guys. I don't care if you mention 50. They don't represent the field at all.
They're the exceptions.

Anyone with any sort of intelligence would realize that.

Outside of naming the most extreme cases, why is programming and engineering prestigous again?

pres·tige
preˈstēZH,preˈstēj/
noun
widespread respect and admiration felt for someone or something on the basis of a perception of their achievements or quality.
"he experienced a tremendous increase in prestige following his victory"
synonyms: status, standing, stature, reputation, repute, regard, fame, note, renown, honor, esteem, celebrity, importance, prominence, influence, eminence; kudos, cachet; informalclout
"she missed the prestige of the job, but not the ungodly hours of work"
denoting something that arouses respect or admiration.
modifier noun: prestige
"prestige wines"

You said a professional athlete or actors aren't prestigous.

The definition disagrees. Like everything else you talk about, you got it wrong.

GAME OVER

Go outside and ask people who do they respect and admire more--a NBA player or a coder.

Haha oh and actors making millions arent extreme cases?

Now your just being hypocritical.

Just stop.

Notice how like several pages later, Ive gone off on affluent suburbs, top schools, top universities, top restaurants, innovative economy, automotive industry growth etc.

And you are still STUCK in trying to force everyone to go along with your hollywood glam=prestige LIE.

Sad really.

Bay Area people still trying, LoL.

Hollywood is not a glam lie. Acting is an ART. But most Bay area people are not really patrons of the arts. They just pretend they are so they can feel like they are New Yorkers, LOL.

Sorry but LA will always own the bay. The bay is puny small fries like Boston and DC. NYC/LA pretty much own everything.

I NEVER MENTIONED ANY SPECIFIC ACTORS MAKING MILLIONS, COLIN.

I NEVER MENTIONED STARS, COLIN.

Read again, and try to use your brain for once.

Hahaha look at the blatant fallacy^

So the TOP of one field vs the bottom of another field?

What about Steph Curry vs Mark Zuckerberg?

Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook and has a personal worth of $35 BILLION.
