I am on the mailing list for finextra – and they flood my inbox with their news. Most of which is nothing, but this one is different. You might want to get it for yourself.
Here is the first paragraph:

It’s a combination of Politics and Software – a potent new mix!
As I keep saying, over and over – we have to understand Software. We know how to use it – everyone has their smartphone, and pokes at it with their fingers – without having the slightest idea of what is going on under the hood.
The banking industry is trying to update itself – having little understanding of what it is trying to do.
