Ben Franklin told us that the only things certain in life are death and taxes. An American politician named Ruth Ann Miner suggested that there is a third certainty; that is, trash.
Trash is a subjective term of course. If you disagree, I challenge you to accompany my wife in search of treasure as she peruses garage sales. One’s trash is another’s treasure, they say.
The principle applies to Information Technology as well. One person’s IT trash is another’s valuable asset.
