Second Law of ThermodynamicsThe Second Law of Thermodynamics is a principle of physics that states that the total entropy of an isolated system always increases over time. In other words, all things tend to move from a state of order to disorder and this process is typically irreversible. The principle suggests that things can't be designed and constructed to last forever. Wear and tear is unavoidable.
Software & DataSoftware and data undergoes a similar process to wear and tear. This is known as software entropy and data rot.
