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.
