||Stein Gives Bioinformatics Ten Years to Live|
|Subject:||Bioinformatics - 10 year life remaining|
I agree with Dr. Stein, although 10 years seems a bit long. I have watched as automotive M-CAD and E-CAD development have been exorcised from the car industry over the last 15 years. The car companies turned against their own children (human and software) with fury and hate. Of course, they are perfectly happy to continue using the software long after the developers have been 'offed.' The basic process involves using public derison against both the developers and the tools they made. COTs or other great commercial hopes are held out as the answer. When these prove inadequate or late, the old software is used in the extended interim.
