Continuous deployment is worth it when it's worth it, and not worth it when it's not. When you hit a ceiling where new deployment doesn't add any value; or even a point when each new increment of deployment adds less and less value while adding more and more cost; continuous deployment would be less and less worth it.

At the same time, there are many things which mean the world to a very few people, while meaning almost nothing to most people. Take, for example, Facebook's addition of their dozens of new gender types beyond the male/female dichotomy.

There will always be UI and UX, though what we call them, and their constraints and design will continue to change dramatically.

Time and space are unique from one another both and independently because of the existence of thought (perception) as well as because those things exist even without perception.

"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

Meta-physicians are split on the answer. Subscribers of substance theory argue a substance is distinct from its properties while subscribers to bundle theory argue an object is solely its sense data.

I believe both contradictory theories are correct. If a tree falls in a forest, and your great-great-great-grandmother was around there to here it, does it make a sound to me, now? Perception of one person is not the perception of another. Yet perception happened. Further, even after great-great-great-grandma died, the tree had still fallen. Things happen whether or not people are there to perceive them, and are (sometimes) recorded because people are there to perceive them; but things can happen even when they're not recorded. ("things happen" a.k.a. "time and space")

People perceive time differently depending on their mental state. When people are having fun, time flies. When people are bored (e.g. when mental states don't shift much), time seems to barely slip by.

Also, people who are asleep often do not perceive time. Similarly, perception of time is influenced by drug use or state of mind.

Since different people have different states of mind at any given time, the answer is YES, time is perceived differently by different people.

Also, note: people travelling at different speeds not only perceive time differently but are operating in different times altogether. For instance, the starlight you see is from the distant past, though you perceive it in the present.
