I continue to study software – I can hardly resist. The movement is waving flags constantly – that say “Study me!”
I can see fundamental changes in Software Development itself. This first kind I saw when I worked in Silicon Valley in the Nineties – garbage software, produced by garbage companies that never lasted.
The second kind is typified by the label Artificial Intelligence – an umbrella term that includes a whole host of activities that are devoted to making Software, and Data Analysis, better.
This appeared after I immigrated to Costa Rica – where I could observe what was going on, with my laptop, and a fast Internet connection.
I can see that the Business World is now paying attention to this – but has no idea what it is.
How it demands a new kind of Business – that makes people important again.
