Ten laws of technology
- You can't keep the 1% of the population who are psychopaths and sociopaths from using the same technology as the rest of us
- Government intervention in technology will always have unintended consequences
- Everything you have now will work right in about 2 or 3 years -- but the new stuff won't quite
- Until investors demand return on capital, there will be no "investing" in the tech sector -- only speculation
- There will never be enough bandwidth
- Humans will be the weakest point in most technological systems
- We cannot figure out enough fast enough about how the brain works
- Technology is best when it substitutes for trivial decisions and supplements human thinking on big decisions
- Everyone needs ongoing tech ed
- It's much easier to get to the top than to stay at the top
