The one message that does come through loud and clear is the unreasonableness of the entire challenge. It isn't enough that we have to master the technology and build something new using creativity, but we also have to put up the the treatment of the apps stores and those really annoying users.

Perhaps the real key to happiness is in the very early part of the diagram where is says:

"Can you program?"

"I guess so"

"Good. Find a job as a programmer. There is a better chance of earning a living."
