Testing the boundaries of collaboration

Kent Beck, for Increment:

It’s 2030. A programmer in Lagos extracts a helper method. Seconds later, the code of every developer working on the program around the world updates to reflect the change. Seconds later, each of the thousands of servers running the software updates. Seconds later, the device in my pocket in Berlin updates, along with hundreds of millions of other devices across the globe.

Perhaps the most absurd assumption in this story is that I’ll still have a pocket in 10 years.
