A guided discussion about why we put up with so many hideously complex tools in our day to day lives. In a world where we are the ones wielding the power, why do we continue to lean on RRDTool, and Graphite, and Nagios, and Splunk, and why haven’t we come up with anything better than Chef or Puppet. Of course all these tools are widely used, and more or less widely accepted, limitations, warts and all. I’d like to explore some of the issues surrounding magic, and how probably fear of the unknown stops us reimplementing some of these things in more modern ways that better suit our clients and companys needs.
