Technology changes, people don’t

I just came across a Novell Success Story featuring me and the network I managed in 1991. It touts the productivity benefits of having folks store files in a central location where they can be easily found by others and where everyone will see the same version of a document.

The technology around meeting that need has changed drastically since 1991, and having everyone mobile and wanting their documents from anywhere in the world added some wrinkles we didn’t have when rolling out a file server in the 1990’s. But the business benefits, and the challenges of getting users to understand the benefits and think about it when saving files, has changed much less than we would have imagined back then.

Enjoy for nostalgia or for plus ça change
