Techie Corner – 2015 – Post #2 – Tech Learning Curve

Techie Corner – 2015 – Post #2 – Tech Learning Curve

Nearly every new technology appears to be a double-edged sword, an instrument for good and harm. How should we handle the implementation of new technologies?

My two cents, but please share yours:

By remembering that every new technology comes with its own learning curve. For example, until the IT experts learn how to fully harden software accounts against electromagnetic pulses and hackers, we should continue to have paper copies as backups for financial accounts, manuscripts, etc. as a precaution.


  1. EMP? Are you reading the same book I am? “One Second After” by Bill Forstchen? 😉

    Far as I know, there’s next to no interest in “hardening” anything – most especially for consumers. Maybe for a few military or high gvt. Most people don’t even have an electronic backup…

    • Hi Aunt Mary, No, I haven’t read One Second After, but I just downloaded a copy to my e-reader. 🙂 Does Bill Forstchen have any recommendations for regular folks for handling EMPs? My default is always to have low-tech backups. Cheers, Ashley

  2. My rule of thumb – don’t undertake anything new unless you absolutely can’t avoid it. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but you get my drift.

    • A very practical rule of thumb, David. Cheers, Ashley
