What I think is most interesting is that when we say "but that's the way we've always done it" we are saying what people in 'the establishment' usually say.

In IT we are happy to disrupt industries causing all kinds of pain to people in 'the establishment' who have 'always done it the old way', yet when someone tries to disrupt us we cry foul.

At some point we moved from taking down 'the man' to actually becoming 'the man'.

You can't have it both ways - complaining when others don't change, then complaining that you don't want to change.

Amen to that.
