Sorry. As I sit here in the blogger's lounge at EMC World I am channeling Randy Waterhouse from Neal Stephenson's classic Cryptonomicon which I am rereading for the I-can't-remember-how-many times. And Neal has got me thinking about technology, why we get up in the morning, and why we are still passionate about this stuff after decades.
Cryptonomicon remains oddly relevant today although written in 1999. It is about something which we are dealing with right now: Transformation.
The more I observe about the current wave in technology re-evolution the more I become convinced that this wave will transform our lives even more than any wave which has gone before, with the possible exception of the PC revolution in the late eighties.
