Avoiding Tech-sand

Tech-sand (technical quicksand) is my label for technology (hardware, software, knowledge, and/or practices) that keep us from delivering value or progressing in our craft. Often tech-sand is poorly understood yet still implemented technology. It can also simply be outdated legacy technology that is heavily entrenched. If you have any IT experience, you most likely have experienced tech-sand. My blog is about the pursuit to deliver value without creating tech-sand for me or others to deal with. As far as I know, I came up with the tech-sand moniker. That is to say that I searched for related instances on tech-sand so that I did not squat on someone's IP or trademark. If you think I have failed in my attempt to be original, let me know and I will consider your argument.
