Hey Scott, thanks for the good work you've done!

What are some programming/tech fads that you were excited about, but never went too far?


Object Databases were a big thing in the late 90s, then that turned into Document Databases that made more sense.

Stateful systems were big in the 90s, with large OOP systems, but those went away as well.

There's always something exciting and it will all eventually go away. 3D movies? ;)


As a full time glasses wearer, I sure hope 3D movies do!

Interesting that stateful systems went away, since React seems to be getting bigger and more popular.

Sure, but Stateful systems on the client side where state can easily be held and can scale is different from writing, say, Amazon.com with a stateful design.
