I think only help-desk personnel, who would rather be hackingrepparttar Pentagon and technical writers are upset that they aren't writing best selling novels. They don't get paid as well for hacking and nobody readsrepparttar 107891 work of technical tomes ofrepparttar 107892 unfulfilled writers. At least they are both being paid to do something.

Inrepparttar 107893 early days of photography only scientists could be photographers because they needed to know how to obtain and mixrepparttar 107894 chemistry, applyrepparttar 107895 emulsion to glass plates, develop those plates and do that entire process again when transferring negative imagerepparttar 107896 to paper.
