The simple, brutal reality

This is the brutal reality that has been ignored until it couldn’t be ignored anymore. The general techno optimism was a case of mistaking technology driven paradigm shift with impending utopia. That is easy to do in the largest paradigm shift in human history. We are all moving full speed into unknown territory and the absence of a roadmap has led to ugly surprises as well as the discovery that other entities see completely different opportunities. The newly learning tech corporations have made the dual, stomach clenching discoveries that: 1) They are not guaranteed a future, 2) Youthful innovation is great for breaking new ground but is weak on backup plans.
