10: Building A Legacy
A Double-Digit Episode Spectacular!
For Episode 10 (or should that be Episode X?), we invited a very special guest: Lilac Schoenbeck (https://www.linkedin.com/in/lilac/).
We discussed remote events briefly, riffing off Dominic’s recent blog post: https://findthethread.postach.io/post/remote-events
After that, we had a wide-ranging discussion about legacy technology, how come “legacy” is a bad word in the technology industry — but not in the outside world, how technologies become legacy, and what value users find in these technologies.
Some topics that came up:
- Pace Layering https://findthethread.postach.io/post/tech-in-layers ;
- Gartner and bimodal IT https://findthethread.postach.io/post/bimodal-or-bi-model ;
- Walled-up server https://www.theregister.com/2001/04/12/missing_novell_server_discovered_after/ ;
- John Chambers quote: “50% of Fortune 500 Won’t Exist in 10 Years” https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/john-chambers-50-of-fortune-500-wont-exist-in-10-years/2020/06/
