IME IT has 'died' every 4yrs, as technology changes fads come and go the
jobe constantly changes and adapts to the 'new normal' .

The SA is dead ...long live the SRE... at least until we find new names and
acronyms to mean ' the people that keep the show running'.

The term IT itself has been used to mean very diff things, though a lot of
people confuse as 'just helpdesk', those in the know understand it is the
lifeblood of automation.

The 'IT crowd' has a hilarious scene with the head of IT interviewing for a
job but unable to say what the acronym stands for....pretty sure we've all
encountered similar people, let them say IT is dead, then turn around and
call us 'cause they broke the internetses'.
