+* Almost 10 years of Ruby
+* Constant progress
+* Is all progress good?
+ * REST (Rails 1.2) was seen as bad by some: Added `routes.rb`
+ * Ruby 1.9: we're not there yet
+ * Bundler: some people didn't like it
+ * Rails 3: harder upgrade
+ * Asset pipeline: cool, but took reorganization
+ * CoffeeScript: different than JS, but what does it provide?
+* In specific cases, "progress" can be hard to say whether "good" or "bad"
+* "The old one was better"
+ * e.g., OSX Lion
+* Not all forward movement isn't always progress
+* Measurements can be subjective and objective
+ * Does it make the car go faster?
+ * e.g., less code
+* Skepticism is OK
+* What's your default mode? Curious or suspicious?
+ * When does a switch happen?
+ * "A conservative is a liberal who got mugged"
+ * Lost data, introduced bugs, took a long time to upgrade...
+ * "New stuff!" -> "Ugh, new stuff..."
+ * Customer or boss says "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
+ * Can turn to overreaction
+ * Fear
