I was having a robust discussion the other day and one thing the other guy said to me was “Software is a colonial construct”
This statement really made my hair stand on end and I thought hang on what?
I was taken back. In fact my mind has been in turmoil for weeks since this statement lay itself in front of me.
So why am I taken back by this. Well software is a tool. Yes it is a construct with limitations on what you can do ….but this is not either.
Everything is a colonial construct. So in countries that did not get colonized, is software a colonial construct.
It is in ones mind I suggest.
For years I have seen young fellows say they are not good enough.
I have seen some people not bother because they ain’t going to win.
Is it easier for me because of my skin ? Yes this is a biased caused by the colonial construct. But this just has to be broken and removed. It will take some doing but there are glimmers of hope.
