Dead-end Streets

Long Talk

Level: Intermediate

Topic(s):

Sooner or later, every technological direction we take leads to a dead-end. Dead-ends aren’t necessary bad things; it can be very pleasant to live at the end of a cul-de-sac. But, comfortable or not, a dead-end can be hard to get out of, and what’s more, the more comfortable it is, the longer we’re inclined to stay there and the harder it is to extract ourselves. This talk is about a very comfortable dead-end, and why I’ll be sorry to leave it. It’s also about the brand new direction, how we get ourselves ready for the exit.
