Who to Blame for the Crisis?

If you are lucky to live and work in the industry for some decades, you will notice that every crisis follows a similar pattern:

  1. Total Surprise, Total Shock - Oh my god, how could this happen? Everybody was working like hell in a "rock solid" company with a "rock solid foundation".
  2. That was expected - There is always someone, who expected it, and always someone who is able to blame someone.
  3. Blame Someone Else - Finally, after the first shocks and blames are gone, someone starts to blame things or ideas or technologies, just to become the World's Next Hero.

Today's Victim

Today's victim is ... (drum roll) ... SOA. I don't advocate for any opinion, just read these few links to make up your mind. The truth is somewhere in the middle.

Morale

The step from Hero to Zero is small. The gap between both is huge and not everybody is able to realize or accept these dangers. If you decide to be World's Next Hero, be prepared and good luck. There is always room enough for more then one hero.

What about me?

Well, no changes. I'm still following my own mantra, live to have fun and don't stop to be curious about the inner workings of the ideas that keep the world spinning...
