    Yesterday’s technologies, today’s problems 

    I found this article interesting: Yesterday’s technologies, today’s problems – via CIO Opinion

    When I first heard the story, I didn’t believe it. I mean, really, a Paris airport forced to shut down because a computer running Windows 3.1 crashed? Seriously?

    It wasn’t a joke. It was real. The airport had to close down because a 23-year-old operating system, never known for stability, crashed. Better that it was an operating system than an airplane, of course, but still!

    I shouldn’t have been surprised, though. All of us are guilty of hanging on to obsolete software and hardware. I kept running Windows Server 2003 for months after Microsoft cut off its support lifeline.

    I found this article interesting: Forget shopping. Soon you’ll download your new clothes | Danit Peleg – via TEDTalks (video)
    Downloadable, printable clothing may be coming to a closet near you. What started as designer Danit Peleg’s fashion school project turned into a collection of 3D-printed designs that have the strength and flexibility for everyday wear. "Fashion is a very physical thing," she says. "I wonder what our world will look like when our clothes will be digital."
