Opinionated Infrastructure: Growing Up and Getting Younger. Happy Birthday Hadoop and PureSystems

Share via Twitter Share via Facebook Share via Linkedin Share via Reddit

The tech birthdays are coming thick and fast right  now. Take WordPress, which is 10 years old today, or Hadoop, which just turned 7. I have been thinking about how the industry is changing right now, in multiple dimensions, and how we have to manage a bunch of unruly kids called analytics, cloud, mobile, social and Big Data. Opinionated parenting can stop you from going nuts- the kids need to know what time is bedtime.

So in the video above I say Happy Birthday to the sponsor of Opinionated Infrastructure – IBM PureSystems and explain why discipline is an important part of the mix. The video is meta, and fun, and I think you’ll enjoy it. Here’s to all our children, growing up yet somehow getting younger all the time.
