"Surely, jake, you know that most of the time you are surrounded by idiots and those who have no Concept of what Virtualisation in Clouded Controls can do/is doing. And as you say, it is like taking candy from a baby , tidying up after/for them."
Yeah, I get it. But what a waste of brain power! Surely we should be advancing, not stagnating?
"surely that is what your second paragraph clearly states?"
Yes. Not absolutely certain of Martian syntax, trying to make my point clear.
"In the lead with idiots though is hardly going to render them that Goal. Methinks they have lost the WAI and their sparkle .... which is a problem always of a Lack of Necessary Future Ability/PreCogniscence right at the top of the Executive Pyramid"
It's MBAs making techie decisions ... with predictable results.
"and thus is easily fixed with a Fit and Proper Replacement/Novel* Appointment."
Ain't gonna happen. Follow the money. MBAs don't care about technology.
"* Well, it would have to be different in order to be different from the present failure. More of the same is not an option."
To an MBA, it is the only option, unfortunately. I had the pleasure of working for Bill & David for a time, and later TOPS-10 DEC. We'll never see the like again.
"And how very strange that the Banking and Finance Sectors would think that things will stay much the same, rather than being Fundamentally different. But then what can one reasonably expect of idiots other than sorry nonsense."
Banking and finance have no clue how the equipment works. From my perspective, they think that addition, subtraction and percentages can't change, so there is no reason to eyeball technology, because it can't change either ... I'm beginning to think I should take advantage of the clueless idiots ... but I'm fundamentally too honest :-/
