Here are some notes and thoughts concerning computer technology and life satisfaction (which is really suffering right now).
concerning the past 25 years of personal computing, Ozzie says,
"Complexity kills. Complexity sucks the life out of users, developers and IT. Complexity makes products difficult to plan, build, test and use. Complexity introduces security challenges. Complexity causes administrator frustration.
And as time goes on and as software products mature – even with the best of intent – complexity is inescapable."
He then points out that complexity ensures longevity.
Hmmm. By this logic, personal computing brings long-term suffering. This is no surprise, considering that past few months of my professional life!
"Complexity is inescapable."
Hence, personal computing ensures long-term suffering. It's unavoidable. Or is it. I believe otherwise.
"Those who can envision a plausible future that’s brighter than today will earn the opportunity to lead."
I see that future. Though how that leadership comes, I don't know. I sure feel ignored right now.
