The Austrian Way – #failfast and #failalways
If I needed a title for a book about #digitization #transformation or the state of #IT in general, this would probably be it. #fail
There would be enough content for it, after all. If you limit yourself to Austria, it’s enough. Martin Leyrer summarized the last 10 years or so very entertainingly in his talk at the Grazer Linuxtage 2022.
But you probably can’t lecture and update as fast as new bulls**t happens. New is an app around 150,000 EUR, which was downloaded 350 times (https://www.derstandard.at/story/2000138272698/app-des-gesundheitsministeriums-kostete-knapp-150-000-euro-und-wurde) or that my social security number is to be used as payment reference for a bank transfer (https://kjoo.be/privacy-and-secrecy-is-not-written-in-capital-letters-everywhere/).
And I think the #fails in Austria are like the universe: big and constantly expanding. 😭
