Legacy Systems

In the world of corporate IT the adjective "Legacy" is applied nearly always as a derogatory term. An older system that we have to put up with because we haven't replaced it yet.

It is the greying, blind and deaf dog that we are all acknowledge will die soon.

For most of human history it seems like men cared very much about "their legacy".

Kings and farmers alike fretted about having a son to pass on their work to.

I don't think it is too much of a stretch to say it is very much a male centric concern.

A woman's contribution to the future is pretty cut and dry, they created all new life with their exclusive organ that has created all people that walk the Earth. That score is currently 0-100,000,000,000 to the ladies.

So men used to fuss quite a bit about their legacy. Most often being concerned that their son participated in the meta-achievement of being a link in an unbroken chain of professionals who practiced the same trade with the same last name (the sign savings alone!).

Immortality through continued use of passed on knowledge.
