Bummer. 2013 was a lost year for tech. Mobile phones stagnated, wearables were a letdown, former giants continued their inglorious decline (Microsoft), merger & acquisitions replaced innovation (Apple), the arrogance of technology’s ruling class increased, social media became profitable, if not compelling, media ravenous for stories bought into techno-hype. And finally, the NSA spying scandal put a chill on the biggest technological shifts of coming years.
So yes, to say something highbrow, the (r)evolution eats its children. Jobs are not being created as they used to.
Now before you go back to crying a lot lately, find comfort in what the hardest working man in social media has to say. Watch all of it, it’s tangible salesmanship not abstract humanitarian crap.
