Sorry for not posting sooner about the last NI Week day. I didn’t really spent much time there, since I only attended the morning keynote. It was given by Jeff Clarke, Senior Vice President of Dell Computer Corporation.
The main point in the keynote was ‘Standardisation’. When a technology becomes a standard, its cost drops significantly, the performance improves and more choices are available. At the end everyone benefits from standard technology.
A mouse that years ago was a revolutionary device is now a days a standard technology.
Unfortunately, there are many examples that show that not always the best technology available becomes the standard.
You can watch the three keynotes here.
