Who are these mythical developers that are selecting technologies purely for hype ? Are these developers so significant in numbers than it is undermining our industry and causing projects to fail ?
And if choosing a technology because it is talked about and blogged about is bad a thing. Then is choosing an obscure and abandoned technology good ?
So many questions.
So we can either summarize authors post with "don't make choices without thinking", which is kicking in an open door, or "let's blame people for choosing hyped technologies", which is no better.
