Hyper-deflation

I threw away a bunch of old software today.

I threw away the CD-ROMs but kept the (plain) sleeves. Ironic, that.

Reminds me of a story I heard: Post-World War II Germany’s hyper-inflation, where someone stole a wheelbarrow full of cash. They stole the wheelbarrow, but dumped the cash.

I’d say this software’s hyper-deflation is about equivalent. (Not to make light of that country’s hardship.)

Software has a life.
