The biggest change in software I've experienced over my career has been in the meaning I find in it, rather than a change in the technology that powers it. The perspectives of those who dream and develop software give it substance, and when when we look, or feel, or hear through it and pull a switch — then it has meaning. Today software is a lens of incalculable scale, and the more humans and switches we add — the more it focuses on diversifying the perspectives that shape it. And that is the meaning I find today in software, more so than ever before.
