Those of you on J.R. Boisclair's mailing list will already know about this, but it is an interesting discussion of what might lie ahead:

I wish there were more quality discussion like this put into the world. It's a great place to learn and doesn't lean too hard into the sales of certain brands topologies. Loved this discussion.
