Tech Fatigue

Tech Fatigue | Disrupt or Die | Scoop.it
This isn't a rant post. But if you have worked in tech for long enough, you know this feeling — tech fatigue. At some point, everything new feels old,..

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, April 19, 2016 2:53 PM
I'm sure that I'm not alone when I say that I think that as a technical communicator, I definitely have tech fatigue. Sometimes it's even "tech trending idea/issue" fatigue. I think I've been hearing about how content marketing is what needs to be done now and going forward for the past 2-3 years. Single-sourcing and structured content is what companies should be doing. Mobile content is the wave of the future! These have all come to fruition, but not to the level that was touted. For example, I've worked for several global corporations who have looked at me like I had three heads if I mention the concept of single sourcing, or writing for mobile, or considering plain English due to localization and translation issues. That shouldn't be! Many cutting-edge or bleeding-edge ideas around technology have been slow to take hold. Why? I think part of it is that people are slow to adapt and give in to change. For example, iPads have been around for about 6 years, and smartphones have been around longer. How is it that I am still able to give presentations and workshops on the basics of writing for mobile? Neil Perlin is another person who comes to mind who does much more about teaching mobile concepts than I do. Why aren't more companies on top of this? What do you think? I agree with the author's perspective of why he loves tech. I don't think I could've put it better myself. But I understand the fatigue as well. Include your insights below. --TechCommGeekMom
