Kill It with Fire

Manage Aging Computer Systems (and Future Proof Modern Ones)

Overall, interfaces and ideas spread through networks of people, not based on merit or success. Exposure to a given configuration creates the perception that it’s easier and more intuitive, causing it to be passed down to more generations of technology. The lesson to learn here is the systems that feel familiar to people always provide more value than the systems that have structural elegances but run contrary to expectations.
