    Juxtaposed against some software of the 90s like Microsoft Access, Lotus Notes, and Visual Basic, there is a distinct contrast in our current world. Malcolm argues that with today's fixation on Continuous Deployment, software has become static, brittle, and inflexible.

And, how can we redistribute agency to users again?
