With all of the new things we are bombarded with and must learn, do you ever get the felling your brain would love to pop this error message?
Actually, kidding aside, I love the excitement from the level of change in technology today. It doesn't matter if you're talking about developing software or buying a cell phone, things are changing fast. While it's a battle at time to keep up, it's a reality of today. As DonXML recently stated in his Developer Career Tips -2006 post, "Complacency is a career killer". He's absolutely right. A job requirement of today is simply keeping up with the pace of change, and understanding the impacts of where things are going. As developers, it's a fine line between trying to implement everything new vs. understanding how changes effect our future directions and design decisions today.
