Everything Dies (In Tech)

You post reminds me that human beings are such good pattern matchers. I think that’s what I tend to do a lot when I’m looking at a new problem — match it to an old one. We do this in so many disciplines, from calculus to poetry.

I think our brain’s tendency to pattern match is a double-edged sword: in some cases it’s not bad (how many times do we want to reinvent a bridge, or realize that red-hot burners are bad for my hand) but in other cases (especially young fields like tech that are still experiencing leaps and huge innovations) we should do as you suggest, and embrace change.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
