When the Student is ready, the teacher appears.
And in Software, the teacher is free! The software ecosystem (that’s what they call it themselves) is full of companies eager for you to use their services – and eager to use yours also. In either case, the service has to be completely explained – so anyone can use it.
This book does a great job of explaining the whole layout. You cannot understand Software unless you understand its social context.
The world is moving from an Industrial context to a Software context. Which freaks some people out. They are certain that Software will eat them alive.
And in a way, they are right. Software is eating the world – but the world is better off for it!
