Beware of new technology

In the following podcast, I outline my reasons why it is dangerous to jump into any new technologies … whether it be a new programming language, a piece of software or hardware.

In the podcast I mention recent hot technologies like HD DVD and Ruby on Rails.

… Yes, I am risking the wrath of Ruby programmers.

🙂

For those of you that are impatient – it comes down to two things:

  1. New technology is typically full of bugs.
  2. New technology may not last … leading you to a dead end.
