Changes in Distribution

You should not have a favourite weapon. To become over-familiar with one weapon is as much a fault as not knowing it sufficiently well. - Miyamoto Misashi

Over the last decade, software distribution has undergone massive changes and advancements.

Originally, software was developed on something called a plugboard. If you're unfamiliar with what a plugboard is, it's essentially an array of sockets that allow quick (for that time, anyway) re-configuration of computer hardware to adapt it to different problems.

The next phase of software distribution's medium of choice was called Punched tape / Papertape; a stack of paper cards which contained the program code in a series of holes punched into the paper.

In the 90's, the software distribution method of choice was a simple 3.5” floppy disk. Size and memory varied, eventually.

Never Stop Evolving

You probably already know this, but I'll say it anyway; you're not a noun, you're a verb. Just as technology constantly looks for new ways of communicating with people, you must constantly be on the lookout for ways to exit your comfort zone and put yourself out there. This is so that you can learn new things and become more than what you originally were. More than what you are now. Never be okay with where you are in life. Okay is not enough. Always be grateful and appreciative, but ask more of yourself. I don't mean you to say "This house and lifestyle isn't enough." Nothing like that. You can live minimally just fine, I mean in terms of that brain and body of yours. Keep on improving it.
