Our world today has become obsessed with reductive perspective. We are consistently represented to in this way. The back panel of every food package has ‘Nutritition Facts’ posted in a box which states (with a certainty that is surely misplaced) a specific and finite amount of clinical detail for a reductive formulation of the contents broken down to mass nutrients and a handful of known ‘essential’ elements. We are told we must communicate what we do and what we want in ‘10 second sound bites’. Any more doesn’t fit into the listener’s ‘view’.
The author argues for a broader perspective using references and examples from Western Art to make his point for a stronger way of doing things.
Instead of thinking ‘hardware’, ‘software’, and further down, ‘wireless devices’, and ‘apps’, they really should be thinking media and medium–and how to better serve linking both. To understand this deeply and fully, you’d probably have to be a cross between Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch and Richard Branson (with a liberal dose of Conrad Black). Still, we can speculate, and when we do, we see a whole new kind of future using and a collaborative range of INTELLIGENT IT devices which work together in providing us (people!) with a seamlessly personalized experience of liaising with the world while providing us with ample opportunity to manifest our greatest and most abundant good!
Women and men of influence, such as entrepreneurs, business people and networkers may use the simple, but rich interface to perform all manner of social connections, produce and prove templates, macros and saleable programs based on their own ‘IP’.
Smarter IT? Given today’s ‘progress’ Maxwell Smart’s ‘shoe phone’ might make sense–after all if you have to remove your shoes for airport security, why not to make a phone call, too? This sort of logic prevails at companies where it’s standard practice to force users to relearn standard programs at regular intervals–rather than building on existing learning.
It’s time that Enterprise Architects (and the people who report on them) started getting their heads out from between their legs (to put it delicately) and wake up! I didn’t come into a world of rapidly evolving IT just to spend more and more time getting less and less utility from my devices. It’s time we demanded more from our architecture, our devices and from Moore’s law. It’s time that mobile manufacturers (and other IT experts) stopped thinking top-down and started working bottom-up.
