The Struggle Is Real: Long Live The Latest And Greatest Technology
Huge Mistake - Did I really buy into a bag phone, c'mon, not Google Glass too, seriously? I am that early adopter in online education that views the use of bleeding edge technology as my own badge of honor and am quick to throw away legacy applications.
We need to keep up with the latest and greatest technology so we can bring the most value into whatever job we’re doing. I am that bleeding edge professor who wants to show and teach my students with every technology that looks shiny and cool. (As I present I will hold many items of my past one-by-one without really referencing them)
Bleeding edge technology is a category of technologies so new that they could have a high risk of being unreliable and lead adopters to incur greater expense in order to make use of them. The term bleeding edge was formed as an allusion to the similar terms "leading edge" and "cutting edge".
Aside from finding myself continually learning more about the craft of development through building solutions for others, I’m also sitting at the intersection of really loving my job.
So yeah, the struggle is real: I’d love to continue to be able to learn new ways of teaching and work with new devices and things like that. But I also really enjoy what I do and the things with which I get to work.
