I burnt out. It was bad. It was bad for years. I'm recovering, though. Worst is that in hindsight I sort of saw it coming. Chances are that some of you are heading that way too, and I hope that by telling you what I went through and didn't understand, you'll be better prepared to stop a destructive spiral earlier, for yourself and/or for friends and colleagues.

Björn Fahller

Björn wrote his first program in 1980. After completing his MSc in CS and Engineering in 1994, programming has been the primary source of income, mostly from writing embedded software for communications systems. He has been working for a while at Net Insight, where he wears many hats, including mentor, trouble shooter, network communications expert, software architect and programmer; the latter in increasingly modern C++.

Occasionally Björn has been seen tinkering with unorthodox software constructs, pondering "what can be done with this?" He lives in Stockholm
