But to label 2013 a lost year for technology is hyperbolic, to put
it generously. What’s more distressing to me is that other smart
folks are simply echoing the headline. I look at the world around
me, and I find a technology landscape that is blooming. How can
you not be excited about the idea of sensors, apps and data
turning our phones into a doctor’s virtual proxy. (I live with a
disease and my phone is as much a part of it, as my meds.)
Helium-filled disk drives that can store more and more data?
Breakthrough or boring. Depends on how you look at the world — as
someone who loves technology or someone who loves the shiny
interpretation of technology.
Great piece, from one of my favorite writers who cover tech.
