This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
The maligning of #IOT - making the technology guilty by association
Around the turn of the century the information technology (IT) community
had the wool pulled over its eyes. It was scared and bullied into

and not much functional proof was provided to its existence. No
reported event of that nature ever occurred but IT consultants
everywhere cashed in on writing fluffy bits of meaningless code that
supposedly tested for the bug! The apocalyptic predictions of 1st
January, 2000, never materialised and it slowly dawned on the IT
community that they had been taken for a ride.
