I have long been a believer in cross-discipline approach to delivering software intensive solutions. This eventually lead me to learn everything I could about user experience. I think this blog post has it just right too:

Tetris point is where everybody is making the same claims

I read a huge amount about information technology, of which I see a lot of open source code. The more you do that, the more you see something of a pop culture across the board. It’s just like fashion, everybody talks about the same thing. Everybody is (seemingly) doing the same thing. It should perhaps work a bit like the game of Tetris:

  • Our technology is built with performance and simplicity: strike!
  • My open source library is fast and lightweight: ka-t’ching!

If you never see anything else, it may be time to move on to something new.
