IT Common Sense

Legacy Applications, Modernized Applications,
"Some things can drive ya crazy"


After working in so many industries and software companies, I have thought back to common successes, failures and amazing lack of common sense in some situations.

In today's economy, downsizing and modernization, I see the same concepts from the 60's and 70's that were a 'brick to kill a worm'.

One of the ways I use to measure sillyness was to count the number of acronyms used and created.  

Way back in the 70's I created a term HSOA, Help stomp out acronyms :)

My latest research of abbreviations and acronyms has the count at 11,873!
