The further back you look, the further forward you see. (Winston Churchill)

To my reckoning, there have been three cycles of the 'Centralized versus Decentralized Computing' debate over the last 30-odd years.

It's one reason why 'ageism' in the software industry (and others) can be translated into 'short-sightedness'.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
