... show them something beyond serverless like conversational programming e.g. Jarvis - - and say - "are we really going to worry about cabling up racks in a world that looks like this" or wait until CFO finds out about billing per function / capital flow.

X : But, it'll be everywhere? Me : Oh yes. It'll have taken over the whole tech world bar the stalwarts and to be honest they'll just sound as odd as CIOs going "I don't believe in the cloud" today. X : Lots of CIOs don't believe the cloud is the future. Me : I know ...

... also, in 2025 you should expect lots of companies declaring they're getting into serverless as if they're leading the pack. It's like companies today announcing they're going to go "data centre zero" as thought this is an amazing insight ... wow, really, that's so 2008.

... some companies are 15 - 25 years behind what they see as "leading edge" which is normally a good decade or more being the actual leading edge. So expect even in 2025, a few stalwarts to be going - "I don't think serverless is the future", same happens today with cloud ...

X : Do you think the whole world will be overtaken by serverless in 2025? Me : In tech, yes, it'll be everywhere. it'll be like cloud was in 2017, endless business articles, lots of noise. X : But will everyone be running serverless? Me : Oh, no. That takes much much longer ...

Excellent discussion on compulsory purchase with two great points on equivalent replacement and abolishment of hope value in Land Compensation Act 1961 - ... Grow housing, boost local Gov finances and annoy a few landowners by paying market value? Lovely.

I still view bitcoin and the laissez faire ideology behind it as a significant danger to the West and competitiveness - - so, I'm still not a fan and would like it to disappear.

Labour isn't weak. There's an incredibly strong and active community that has grown around Labour. I'm not sure where you get your info from.

X : YouGov got the GE right. Me : Between April and May it was giving the Conservatives close to a 20pt lead ... if I remember it was only at the end it went "hung". The more cynical tend to say polls aren't just reflecting but trying to influence opinion / action.

.. the usual response to a YouGov poll has become ... "wait a week for the other polls to tell a different story". I treat them all with an awful lot of skepticism.

X : Do you think that Labour could win a general election? Me : Labour was 21 pts behind the Conservatives in the last election and it was close. This time, Labour is ahead of the Conservatives (Britain elects). X : What about YouGov Poll? Me : You're pulling my leg?

You can certainly detect emergence when it starts to emerge. But you can't usually predict what will emerge in the uncharted space until it starts unless it's a very simple combination.

That's kind. Alas, I'm very much where the wind takes me. I don't have budgets for travel / conferences ... so I skip across the world depending upon who invites me. It's different, more spontaneous but also less controlled and tends to be more rushed. It's fun in its own way.

X : I thought war was the mother of invention? Me : No. The act of planning / preparing / conditions of war are ... the actual war bit isn't. The ideal state seems to be continual total war without anyone actually being killed or things destroyed i.e. a strong societal purpose.

... but it also helps you identify those events and components which slow down progress - the barriers, the cause of inertia etc. X : Such as? Me : There are many. Three things which do a grand job of stopping progress are intellectual property rights, social inequality and war.
