No more inventions?

According to Nicholas Donofrio on CNet in this article he explains how there is no longer the next big thing.

Wow, I picked the wrong time to start looking at patents!

Ok, maybe it is not that bad. Nick does state there is plenty of room for invention but it will be around services and more importantly combining these services to make new inventions. This sounds like the IBM technical leader is subtlety promoting IBM’s SOA initiative, what do you think?

I hope he is, the more I learn about SOA and the value behind services it makes me think why it wasn’t standardized long ago. Much of the new code on the WED client is OSGI service based and it makes decoupling, abstraction and runtime extremely flexible.
