Risk of Obsolescence
The following quote is from the president of the British Computer Society, Professor Nigel Shadbolt. In a keynote address to Healthcare Computing in Harrogate this week, he offered these definitions: “State-of-the-art is any computer you can’t afford; obsolete is any computer you own; a microsecond is the time it takes your state-of-the-art computer to become obsolete.”
