Disruption Threats: The ecosystem is vulnerable to becoming irrelevant because the platform is sustains is becoming irrelevant. Insidious Pragmatism: The passion is forced out by pragmatists attaining critical mass, so it ceases to innovate and capture imagination.

  6. Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that's simple, beautiful and

    fun. By reg braithwaite Photo by Beaman Kolb page 6 of 62 RUBYVÄRLDENS FÖRESTÅENDE KOLLAPS There's a certain person who culturally hates innovation. They might be a laggard in the "crossing the chasm" model. They often call themselves "pragmatists." They are good for one reason and bad for two reasons.

There's no tolerance for risk such as breaking backwards compatibility. Microsoft has had one post-Windows hit, XBOX. The one that doesn't run Office or have "Windows" in its name.

By reg braithwaite Photo by Stichting Onderzoek Multinationale Ondernemingen page 9 of 62 RUBYVÄRLDENS FÖRESTÅENDE KOLLAPS Trite (and false!) definition: "Trading quality of result for lowering volatility, then scaling the output." This is the pragmatic way. It's not just Java and its programmer hordes, it's also futzing with RVM and Bundler instead of rethinking Ruby :-)
  10. Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that's simple, beautiful and

    fun. By reg braithwaite Photo by c_ambler page 10 of 62 RUBYVÄRLDENS FÖRESTÅENDE KOLLAPS Pragmatists are good because they bring the money. They get "results people can measure." Which means, that quite often metrics like the number of companies hiring Ruby talent or the types of contracts available can slowly morph from tracking the ecosystem's health to tracking its penetration by pragmatists.

What's the name of it?" I said, "I haven't got the slightest idea." He said, "It’s a brown-throated thrush. Your father doesn't teach you much about science." I smiled to myself, because my father had already taught me that [the name] doesn't tell me anything about the bird. He taught me "See that bird? It's a brown-throated thrush, but in Germany it's called a halsenflugel, and in Chinese they call it a chung ling and even if you know all those names for it, you still know nothing about the bird--you only know something about people; what they call that bird. Now that thrush sings, and teaches its young to fly, and flies so many miles away during the summer across the country, and nobody knows how it finds its way," and so forth.
