Editorial A couple of days ago, I read an interesting article by Kevin Kostis about how complex computer systems are and how they have a long way to go. I have to partly agree with his assessment, however a lot of folks don't take the time to learn about there own investment.

Well ...more or less the whole discussion boils down to the point that our society becomes more and more lazy and that this is bad.
Latest research has shown that if you look globally men becomes more and more intelligent. Except of the USA where probably because of the disastrous social situation for many people the IQ is decreasing.
In germany where I live politics say that children has to learn much more than ten years ago while having worser circumstances because of a lack of teachers.
What is my point?
Well we have to know much more with less time and we become more intelligent.
What is the conclusion?
We accept that our society is a society of specialized work and try to specialize on things that gives ous some reward.
I - for example- don't change the oil in my car neither do I
fix things in my house, but I speak 4 languages and earn my money as a Software developer.
In this business I like complexity and therefore read many books about Design Pattern oder J2EE, but at home I keep being lazy...
