Whenever the applications we have built are broken, we become application repairman. “Clink! Screw! Bend! Inflate!”, and suddenly you are the hero in your company again. You are something special: only you can repair the system. But if we go on an IT conference, we are surrounded by other super heroes. Some of them look strange, other smell strange, but each of them knows how to build and repair an application. And in a Krypton world filled with supermen, the real hero is the guy who can do the ordinary. On a conference, this is the guy who can entertain the audience, who can give talks which are not boring, who can make the others laugh. It depends on the context who is gonna be the hero. If everybody is able to repair a bicycle, a bicycle repairman would hardly be special.
