mv (option) filename1.ext filename2.ext – How to rename stuff and make money

Aside Posted on

I’m sitting here on Sunday morning thinking about how there is a propensity in the “Agile” space to re-name or [re] label things that already exist so they become “new” things. That action in of itself is not bad. It can create new value, new wealth.

It becomes bad when it is sold as something entirely new. Where is the innovation? In the content or context — how the pieces were moved around or collected?

 

It’s like adding one Gala apple to a basket of red delicious apples and then going around telling everyone the basket is full of oranges.

 

Then entities start making money off of the alleged “new thing.”

 

I’m particularly fascinated by the DEVOPS movement. Especially considering my teams were doing the essence of “DEVOPS” with the USAF as early as the late 90’s (YMMV).

Then there is this thing called Open source. Linux. The core is there too from the early 90’s with Linus.

 

I was watching The death of Agile – Allen Holub. 🙂

 

What has really changed? Thoughts?
