Hype Cycle 2.0 …

I absolutely love this version of the Hype Cycle which Euan Semple found from Geek & Poke:

Hype Cycle 2.0

Hype Cycle 2.0

The thing is, it’s a fair representation of it. Rather like the version of the Laws of Thermodynamics as a restatement of Murphy’s Law, which goes:
1 – you can’t win
2 – you can only break even at absolute zero
3 – you can never reach absolute zero

Doesn’t apply in enterprise IT, though, where absolute zero is sometimes quite common!
