Opinion: The cutting edge conundrum

“We want to stay on the cutting edge of our industry.” You hear that a lot in business circles, especially in IT, because we thrive on innovation … that is what IT brings to the table.

(Besides, that “edginess” justifies our right to come to work in jeans and tee-shirts because “we’re just that cool!”)
