My posts have been non-existent for the last few months because I've suddenly got things to do. My job involves some combination of sitting around thinking about what the future looks like and relating that to senior management in pithy and catchy ways, and driving the execution of that vision by persuading engineers to do things and sometimes just telling people what to do. For the first half of this year I spent a lot of time thinking about the future. For the last half its been execution.
But I wanted to talk, for a minute or two, about the future.
