IT Is Everything But Old

IT Is Everything But Old

You love technology and how it makes your life easier. Would you like to listen at how it makes mine harder? Don’t worry, this tale has a happy ending.
According to Wikipedia, “Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, such as computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, e-commerce and computer services.”

We get it. IT is everything. It connects to everything everywhere (what a coincidence, BeAnywhere does to!). You use it, even though you don’t know it. Everything that is remotely automated, even the most useless device, can and will be put into the IT pile bag. For someone that has been around for a few years, the one thing that does not fit into IT is OLD.

IT is everything, but old. It is built by the youngest brightest minds, for the younger tech craving ones. So you study, you keep up with the constant changes, you prefect yourself and your expertise. But you get old, and somehow it gets awkward to ask a teenager what’s that thing that everybody’s talking about.

But you love IT, and there is no other place like IT. You get aggravated, nothing ever stays the same, constant updates, data in the Clouds, equipment getting dated (the costs!) and software needing to keep up.

But what if it all stayed the same all the time? Just imagine… Unbearable! At the end, it is like a natural selector that keeps everything new and going forward. IT may be right about ditching the old updated me, but I’m just too addicted to ditch IT, so I just keep moving forward.
