It was apt that I should come across this nugget of wisdom- “Conquer by Inaction” while managing a project of which I just could not understand the technical details.

This article was written 15 years ago when internet services officially started in India. I had expressed a number of fears in this some of which have been happily proved incorrect. However, I find it interesting that there are almost no fundamentally new technological breakthroughs that have come around since the article was written. Some of the concerns raised in the article still hold, particularly its conclusion.
Trivia: The original article was typed on a PC- XT machine using Word Star 7.
I had used email for just over a month then using a corporate account and the browser I was then using were Mosaic and Gopher !
Anyone remember using these?
