It’s easy to become intellectually intimidated where I live. Yesterday, I was at Philz Coffee, which was crowded, as always. I don’t make a habit of reading other people’s laptops, but as I was looking for a place to sit down (a task at which I failed), I noticed the contents of several screens. They were populated with dense computer code, complex mathematical formulas, and other stuff that I don’t have sufficient grey matter to comprehend. I felt quite diminished.
Having been involved with high-tech since 1979, and having lived in Palo Alto since 1984, I have some acquaintance with the psyche of the Silicon Valley. It has long been a very imitative place, in spite of its frequent self-praise with respect to innovation and “outside the box” thinking (the phrase itself being quite cliche and, itself, very inside-the-box).
It’s official. In a world of war, poverty, disease, and hunger, we have to come this. Jesus.
I’m a technologist, and I always thought 3D printing was just about the dumbest thing ever. Not as dumb as the Apple Watch, which will be a complete embarrassment in the end, but still pretty damned stupid. The public is finally catching on to this heresy.
