Why IT Needs To Change for Gen Z

generic We are starting to do this already where I work. (443 comments)

We figure there will be no 'internal' network eventually everything will be done from the cloud.

generic Well after reading this story. (1188 comments)

I'll have to visit this neighborhood with my crowbar and ski mask. By making a scene they drew the attention of the media, which has plastered this all over for any criminal to see. So I suspect their crime rate will go up more than if they had been quiet.
