Let There Be Light.....Bulbs

Most of us assume light where there would be darkness as a commodity. Except for very rare occasions (storms, blackouts, etc), we need only flip a switch to illuminate our space.

For those who have watched National Treasure, we know that Thomas Edison failed hundreds of times in his trials to invent a light-bulb. He is remembered for the one time that he succeeded.

Too often in technology, we want to develop single-point solutions for quick business value built atop a robust, extensible framework result from others investment. We want the light, but don't want to invest the work to develop the light-bulb!

Thanks to Amir (Twitter: @keynotopia) for the impetus of this perspective!
