Chasing the Latest Shiny New – Software Design as Fashion Design

Rob is in loveHe’s been in love before, he’ll be in love again.  And there’s nothing wrong with that.  Love is cool.

Related (sort of), I was talking to a recruiter/vendor today and they wanted to know if there was any word that they could utter that might make me interested in moving to a new job.

I think they wanted me to say something like “Knockout” or “Angular” or something.  A few years ago, it would have been “Rails”.

When you don’t have an interest in the end result of the work, or at least only a passing interest, then I imagine I might have some words in mind.  But I don’t.

There’s nothing wrong with being a fashion designer, not at all.  I could never be one.

For a lot of people, they want software because they want it to do something.  And they prefer people who will stick to the doing something, and not continually lose interest because it isn’t the latest shiny new.

But it sure can be fascinating to watch.  You know, if you are into that sort of thing.
