    I do think we’re in a 20 yr innovation cycle but I’m wondering if the root cause isn’t being missed. Meaning, every generation of kids/young adults should and typically does disrupt the status quo of the previous generation so is the technology the disrupter or just a byproduct?

    I’m actually betting on the culture, not particular the technology. The technology, let’s say PaaS, is a byproduct of developer culture over the last 10 years. Whether someone implements some technology specifically labeled PaaS or not, every dev team is aiming for streamlined deployment. It’s been evident in circles working toward better, faster and higher quality continuous integration and delivery.

    So in the end, the culture is disruptive, the technology is driving it home for this generation of developers (and IT administrators that are ahead of the game, etc., etc., etc)
