It’s all about the version

Have ever you noticed that people are obsessed by versioning the things? Yep, it’s true. Today, everything has a version. Even you. I am not sure why the versioning is so important. I guess it is related to the notion of improving the things.

Here is a short list of what I encounter most often in my job.

  • Web (1.0), Web 2.0, Web 3.0
  • Project Management (PM 1.0), PM 2.0, PM 3.0
  • ALM (1.0), ALM 2.0, ALM 3.0
  • Agile (1.0), Agile 2.0
  • Scrum (1.0), Scrum 2.0
  • PRINCE, PRINCE2
  • UML 1.x, UML 2.x

I can easily add a few dozen more items to the list. The things I selected can be classified as ideas, concepts, processes and standards. I won’t bother showing you software product versioning. However you may be surprised to see that versioning is applied to other things.

  • Science 2.0
  • Health 2.0
  • Business 2.0
  • Enterprise 2.0

Versioning is applied even to food.

  • Milk 2.0
  • Bread 2.0

It’s not that we version the things around us only. We version ourself as well.

  • Übermensch
  • Human 2.0
  • People 2.0

I am still playing with the idea of what would be the next version of me. Or you 😉
