My nature is viewing the world asking myself what is wrong with this picture. Sort of like the Eeyore character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books. I also ask myself I’m I perceiving fact or fiction?

Checking out what’s new or not, what’s real or not, or what’s new and improved, in the computer and electronic industries, is something like panning for gold.

Buried within the mountains of info rubble produced daily by these industries, lots of Fiction is found and every so often one finds uplifting Facts making the effort worthwhile, or Eeyorish depressing ones.

This opinionated blog is about uplifting or depressing, and facts or fiction, technologies I find in my frequent panning of the rubble.

Facts or Fiction

The blog posts are my opinions about some technologies found in the info rubel. Are they ThumbsUp Fact or Fiction ThumbsDown? See Hype Cycle.

I am a computer systems architect and electronics engineer with decades of passion pursuing what’s new and improved within the computer and electronic industries.

These industries are probably the fastest changing endeavors mankind has ever created. The half life of many computer and electronic products making it to market is relatively short. There are some very short lived ones and some that were just vapor.

Is about a deep dive into Progressive Web Apps (PWA) technology to gain an understanding and figure out a PWA development architecture for creating the web site. It is not about the nuts and bolts of how to create a PWA, but about the PWA development architecture and technologies used to create sites.
