DevOps is a hit! Everyone is talking about it! Everyone is doing it! Everyone is going to meetups and conferences! Everyone…. oh wait, EVERYONE isn’t. It just feels likes it is everyone.

Why? Because we live in the DevOps echo chamber.

Now, I’ll admit that I’m a full fledged citizen of the DevOps echo chamber. I was immediately drawn to the lightening rod that the term “DevOps” has come to represent.

I watched the early crowd gather around that DevOps lightening rod and quickly coalesce into a full-fledged movement complete with hyper-active blogging, conferences, meetups, mailing lists, rivers of tweets, and a feverent throng of self-identifying DevOps believers. Life is happy for us DevOps enthusiasts.

However, we do need to acknowledge that we are living inside an echo chamber of our own making. Most of the conversation and high-fiving is between already converted DevOps enthusiasts. Even the arguments amongst ourselves contain more agreement than disagreement.
