If a tree falls in a forest; If a packet crosses a network

Some observations of late:

  1. The only reason to have a network is so that application traffic can traverse it.
  2. The days of network engineers being able to keep up by typing IOS commands are quickly coming to an end
  3. Network engineers are, out of necessity, learning to write software to help them do (and keep and excel in)  their jobs
  4. The space between networking- and applications-management is disappearing quickly
  5. Application-Centric Networking is currently (c. May 2016) a philosophy and will become a technology
  6. SDN will make the network invisible (iow, software will eat the network)
