Tech is like compost

You get unbelievable amounts chucked about.

Not surprisingly it’s pretty unpalatable to most people.

But every now and then some genius takes a seed, plants it in this mountain of compost being thrown out in all directions, waits, sells the result to the public and becomes a billionaire.

The problem is: no-one can believe it’s that easy.


E.g. look at the crappy UI of old phones.

Then along came the iPhone.


Or the crappy UI of old computers.

Then along came the Mac courtesy of Xerox Parc.


Or the crappy interface of git.

Or the crappy interfaces for any modern technology such as:

  • Ansible
  • Kubernetes
  • Terraform
  • AWS
  • Apache
  • HTML
  • CSS
