How does a bomber outlast a JS library?

Ember is probably leading the JavaScript framework pack by supporting releases with security patches for slight more than a year. By comparison, there’s a cottage industry of garages restoring and updating old Porsche sports cars then selling them for ridiculous prices. The USAF (the same one, curiously, that is spending $1.5 trillion on a useless jet, somehow) is going to use their largest strategic bomber, the B-52, for one hundred years.

I’m always thinking about Greg Borenstein’s words when it comes to technology churn:

The constant churn of web technologies hobbles the creation of timeless learning materials and continuity of knowledge across generations.

We should try harder on this.
