I don’t know if it’s possible to condescend without possessing some form of superiority, or expectation. So, condescension is legit, in my opinion: someone either knows more and is passive-aggressively challenging the other(s) to meet them at the same level, or is expressing disappointment out of failed expectation.
Like cruelty, it’s immature, but it would be… unrealistic (though I very badly want to say, patronizing) to generally expect people are mature.

Employment of information security analysts, web developers, and computer network architects is projected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Job prospects for all three occupations should be favorable.
The basement/parent’s house/tiny room for a meager rent is comfortable and anonymous, I know. But at some point we have to like, participate, because there’s a fuck ton of people in the world, all scrambling, confused, afraid. Here’s snippet from a former Hacker turned InfoSec dude who just might be YOU.
"You don't see what you're doing,'' he said. "You're not going into someone's house and kicking his head in and taking all his stuff. There's no face to associate with the problems you're causing."
…or, not. Whatever. I’m just a blog, not a cop.
So… I’ll see you at the next DEFCON? Or, not?
