LinkLog: Internet – An Engine of Convenience

From Twitter founder Ev Williams

the internet is “a giant machine designed to give people what they want.” It’s not a utopia. It’s not magical. It’s simply an engine of convenience. Those who can tune that engine well — who solve basic human problems with greater speed and simplicity than those who came before — will profit immensely. Those who lose sight of basic human needs — who want to give people the next great idea — will have problems.

“We often think of the internet enables you to do new things,” Williams said. “But people just want to do the same things they’ve always done.”

Meta:

Some times my blog posts are not my posts or reblogs. They simply link to a blog post I like providing some context through a few snippets. I do this because I know some of you would enjoy the original post. Some times I add my own commentary.
