Guess I'd better quit my job, then!
If you want to work in a world where assembly language programming
and optimizing for every single byte of code or memory utilization
still counts, get into the embedded systems world.
A lot of (clueless) companies want their embedded code written in
Java or C++ or such foolishness, but really, if they're really that
stupid, you don't want to work for them anyway.
