But the 1st way of DevOps is about systems thinking and it takes a lot more groups in the system of successfully delivering a product than Dev, Sec, and Ops. First! (after Dev and Ops) does not seem like a compelling argument.

The plural of anecdote is not data, and creating a binary artifact is not "running the Internet". Something happens with all those LOC, and regardless of whether it should or should not be that way, scripts run the Internet.
