Oh TechNation. Britain's got tech talent. Just not like this


Re: ClusterFuck

ARM and IBM aren't "digital".

The kind of "digital" these people do involves web sites with garish pastel graphics and smiley rounded fonts, and a lot of bouncy empty-headed enthusiasm.

At least half the people involved know nothing about hardware or software.

This is not an exaggeration. Someone asked me to contribute to a "digital" college course recently, and the "digital motivator" running it had put together a lesson plan with "Note to self - find out if apps are made with CSS" in one of the boxes. She'd left exactly two hours - one session - for a complete introduction to hands-on app development.

Y'see, when you're "digital", nothing is hard, and everything is possible. Except... not really.

Unless you're the kind of person who has the brilliant ideas and gets other people with real skills to do the work. Now that's "digital."
