What Happened to Silicon Valley? — 5 Comments

  1. Good piece w many good pts.
    “learn that big changes to the software that influences your life — Google search, Facebook, etc. — are often made by a small
    team of young programmers, sometimes fresh out of college. A small “cute” design decision can cause all kinds of change and
    wreak havoc on many people’s lives and emotions. That’s huge power in the hands of young people in their twenties. Consider
    the no-doubt trivially implemented (and likely not-well-thought-out) incorporation of the “like” button in Facebook.”

    Very true; young and fresh but w little wisdom and/or little ability to reflect deeply. Plus being affected by peer pressure can be another factor…

    Power, money and hubris/ego, they all go hand in hand

    Thnx Amy.

  2. What a thoughtful and illuminating article. I started in IT in the ‘70’s too, and agree fully with all of your perspectives and alarm bells. Fascinating how so many can’t see the impending control and abuse of so much – but mainly all of us!! I’ve already started sharing it to those who aren’t seeing or realising what the impact.
    Thank you.
    Love, Gary
