Voltaire, Vonnegut, and the Vocabulary of Microservices

I took my son to the library the other day to get some books to read over summer break. While there, I stumbled across a copy of Voltaire's Candide, a book I'd heard of often but never read. What a crazy book! I found it fascinating to read such biting satire from the 18th century. And since I have been obsessing about microservice architecture for the last four years, two other things struck me. First, the book's concluding message that "we must cultivate our gardens" reminded me of Erik Wilde's "service landscaping" concept. Secondly, I am convinced that Candide must have had a big influence on my favorite author, Kurt Vonnegut. But what does Vonnegut have to do with microservice architecture? Kurt Vonnegut's 1963 novel, Cat's Cradle, tells the story of the world ending from irresponsible scientific progress, an allegory for the nuclear proliferation threatening the globe at that time. In it, Vonnegut creates a fictional but surprisingly fleshed-out religion called Bokononism that is essentially a collection of untrue but useful proverbs.
