Re: The Cloud is just a 1960s mainframe model for the 21st century

The “trouble” comes in several forms.

From the built in obsolescence of my phone where apps I’m using cease to work, to no further security patches for my os (Windows 7 I’m looking at you) to no patches for the compiler and it’s library.

Even writing code in “lowest level” C there is some dependence on Libraries and don’t even start me on Java.

And our young aspirational coders need these “cloud” credentials on their CVs to even get an interview.

I believe Aurther C Clark said that when we no longer know how something works we will start believing it’s magic. Sigh!
