I was struck by a quote from an Insider News article Kent posted about some new DevOps developments: [^]:

"The cusp of maturation of previously bleeding-edge paradigms."

My head went fast-forward to 2025, where a developer named Devindra Codearaja has just received a reply/warning from his Dev-Ops team's "Substance Enhancement" committee ... I quote:
Quote:
Dear Valued Team Member, Devindra,

We have evaluated your request to increase your daily methamphetamines allowance, and, given the results of your most recent blood-screening profile, we must say, in the interests of the Team, we cannot grant that request.

We have detected trace amounts of MDMA aka "Ecstasy" [^] in your blood; as you know, MDMA is not an approved substance for your Team.

It is in the interests of the Team to avoid excessive empathy, and distracting personal insights, or inappropriate bonding behavior: all of which are associated with this drug.

Since your work is excellent, and your behavior in SCRUM slug-fests is appropriate, we will take no punitive action at this time.

However, per your contract, your supplementation will be modified to include:

1) daily: 5 mg. of Xanax given orally

2) 1x weekly: LSD 25 micro-grams to be given orally 2hrs. before Friday SCRUM.

Do be aware that if the next screening shows any signs of unauthorized drugs ... or indicates you have not taken your approved supplements ... further action may be required.

Please schedule a private session with our substance-counsellor bot.

Sincerely, Edwina Hawkins,
Substance Enhancement Committee
