Definition IT

Definition IT is a new blog from New Zealand "dedicated to explaining, in non-journalistic words, the growing frustration I have with our modern technological world," although really it is about the author's frustration with IT, his career for the past 30 years. Free sample:

Don’t get me wrong I think the opportunities that cloud computing offers to businesses are huge but I think the industry's current rapid growth is more a reflection of the failure of “corporate IT” than it is of any intrinsic benefits that might be available to businesses.

It is good for people in ed-tech to read this kind of thing, because we've got an inferiority complex that makes us think that everyone else gets this stuff right. They don't. And that the next big thing will solve the problem. It won't.
