Yep, today marks the fifth anniversary of the publication of my article “IT Doesn’t Matter” in the Harvard Business Review. I thought I should mark the momentous occasion, even though I’m as sick of the whole thing as everyone else is at this point.
Still, “IT doesn’t matter” has taken on a happy life of its own, largely independent of the original text. I saw today some IT columnist terming the article a “screed.” I don’t know about that. I don’t have anything against screeds, but t doesn’t seem all that screedy to me. Anyway, read it yourself and make up your own mind
