Seyed Razavi: The end of a craft

Seyed Razavi: “It is politics that means you don’t want to be locked into a particular vendor and thus adopt open standards. It is politics that makes you want to use a portable runtime environment. [...] It is politics that means you outsource development or roll-in third party software as much as possible. [...] These are not technical issues. These are not issues that arise in the process of our craft. They are issues that arise because we work in a political environment.”

The above was posted to my personal weblog on February 12, 2003. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
