Have you noticed how much of our language is infused with words, phrases, and symbols that refer to obsolete technology and practices? We still refer to video clips as “footage,” even though that term originated from the motion picture industry, where scenes are recorded on film that is measured in feet. We might even “tape” TV shows on our DVRs. To call someone on the phone, you “dial” the number, although phones haven’t had dials in ages. To accelerate an electric car, you “step on the gas pedal.” And to save a file in most software programs, you click on an icon that looks like a 3.5-inch floppy disk, even though a growing segment of the population has never seen such an object.
You Design. We Code.
