In the IT field probably once a day someone says “lets not reinvent the wheel”. I am starting to wonder what would happen if we did reinvent the wheel? It’s been a few 1000 years since it has been invented and I think we would be smarter now. Maybe we’d do a better job and come up with something better.
The original wheel was stone and over time has changed and included spokes and been made out of different materials, had rubber tires added, etc. So what if those people never reinvented the wheel? I think reinventing the wheel is something we should all think about the next time someone tells us not to.
