The lyrics were written by Pat in response
to Nicholas Carr’s Harvard
Business Review paper “IT Doesn’t Matter” in which Mr.
Carr proposes that businesses reconsider their IT investments. Pat says this
is not the vision he sees for the future, but rather what is implied by reducing the
investment in IT as proposed by Mr. Carr. This is a “speculative retrospective”
in which we examine what happened “The Day That IT Died”.
