In retrospect, these were big things. In retrospect we talk about the Rise of Ruby and Rails, or the messy explosion that is Agile or SCRUM, or the Gang of Four and their design patterns. At the time, though, we didn't always know these were going to be revolutionary. Sometimes we did (the guys who were launching an Apollo moon mission were pretty darn sure it was new and different), but sometimes we didn't.
Sometimes revolutionary is only visible in retrospect.
I wonder, sometimes, what we're doing now that is revolutionary. What things are we doing today that we'll look back on in 20 years and say, "this was the start of something big"?
So I turn it over to you: what are we doing now that is revolutionary?
