The Silicon Valley Tarot

CIO of Cubicles

Ace of Networks

The network rises over the horizon, a new dawn of computing. Its golden rays pierce the dark clouds of stand-alone number-crunching. So-long, you stodgy, cranky legacy systems. Hello, client/server. Oh, yeah . . . did I mention terabytes of digitized porno, spam, and USENET flamewars, too? Auspicious beginnings. Reversed: Confusion, chaos.
