Two contemporary views on the role of technology
Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening.
And from a hitherto unknown tribe deep in the Amazon rainforest.
Technological advances must not “determine our destiny.”
Oh Im sorry, that is not a primitive tribesman but Hillary Clinton, a candidate for the leadership position of the most powerful and technologically advanced country in the world! I get those two confused all the time! My mistake.
