A Look To Windward
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.Buddha
Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least to do no harm.Hippocrates
We who build systems stand at the crossroads of history. We exist in a time where a small team of individuals can change the world while doing nothing more impressive than sitting at a keyboard.
As creators of what we now call software we can learn much from those that went before us. When the software developers that come after us look back on these times, will it be with pride or with shame? Will they praise our courage in creating systems that birthed new ideas? Will the systems we created grow beyond the simple concepts of software to create hard and lasting change in the world?
We don't know, but it's an amazing time to have a keyboard.
