The Death Of One Thousand Cuts

One of the big things you get as a software developer is a sense for automation.  Every advancement of our profession is about automating something - computers were first intended to replace tedious manual math calculations, after all.

So we have the hammer of automation, and tend to see many things as the Nail of repetition.  Not that this is a bad thing - it makes our jobs interesting, and keeps us from dying of RSI.

Yet as we go along, we sometimes get into the rut of the things we are not yet able to automate, so I see this post as a reminder to keep looking for thing to automate.
