Step Changes in Technology

What is this about?

Step ChangeTechnology continually changes and in ICT in particular there is continual change. Some of this is mere produce improvement, some of it is marketing nonsense but some of it is truly game changing or so successful it outstays all predictions. In fact the inability to predict the game changers is part of what makes this so interesting – almost all of the entries were obvious in hind-sight but not at point of release.

The rest of this blog entry is my thoughts on what some of the most important step changes have been – I leave out things like punched cards / tape / home computers as these were all pre-career. Instead I focus on the last 25 years.

I have no doubt missed out a lot – feel free to comment or contact me (see here for details). Thanks for reading!
