[Bonus Link:] Dave Winer on tech markets:
My own two cents, when thinking about declining tech markets, something I’ve seen four or five times — when a boom is tailing off is the best time to invest in truly new ideas. People’s thinking has been going in one direction for a long time, so long that all the big or obvious ideas have been tried, many times, and people are creatively exhausted. It’s a good time to change your assumptions, head off in a different direction. Everyone’s been zigging, so now it’s time to zag.
holy shit that comic is amazing.
keep on rockin, hugh.
Duuuuuuuuude. This drawing says what I’ve been feeling for the past several years. Sea…of losers…bwahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. When I come across above average intellect these days, I think, “Hey, that seems familiar. I used to be able to think like that, with that speed, with that edge…in a time long, long ago…” My brain has grown dull since…turned into a sloth swimming in quicksand. Still searching for those of similar intellect. Definitely don’t find them in my current job: government. I’ve been advised to be patient. Well, I’m waiting…searching…waiting…
Isn’t that the time no one has any truly new ideas?
I was surrounded by morons in my office….So, I took down the mirrors.
Have I mentioned how much I like your cartoons today?
