Over at AITS.org — Maxwell’s Demon: Planning for Obsolescence in Acquisitions

I’ve posted another article at AITS.org’s Blogging Alliance, this one dealing with the issue of software obsolescence and the acquisition strategy that applies given what we know about the nature of software.  I also throw in a little background on information theory and the physical limitations of software as we now know it (virtually none).  As a result, we require a great deal of agility inserted into our acquisition systems for new technologies.  I’ll have a follow up article over there that provides specifics on acquisition planning and strategies.  Random thoughts on various related topics will also appear here.  Blogging has been sporadic of late due to op-tempo but I’ll try to keep things interesting and more frequent.
