Technology is born and forever linked to humans, once the first human took that first stone and used to extend the limitation of his natural body. But then our technology has been killing us since that first stone hit someone in the head. Millions of years later, that first stone is now the “Smart Phone”, so smart that it is still killing us in multiple ways like distracting us while operating a bigger stone – the vehicle. The human being isn’t physically designed to have mastery over technology, but we can’t survive without it. This paradox is worthy of a lifetime’s study.
I consider myself blessed to be able to have my entire professional career within information technology. Directly from university graduation I got my first job as programmer in a financial firm. From being a lowly procedural programmer, I went on to take various software development and management roles and witnessed back-and-forth paradigm shifts in technologies; server-side, client-server, serverless, SaaS, PasS, and back; just to name a few.
