So for a goal, I’ll just say “build tools to make us more
enlightened.” I mean “enlightened” in a Carl Sagan sense, where we
are the universe trying to understand itself. And we’ve long hit
the limit of what we can think with our naked brain, so we need to
augment it in some way with mind tools. But the tools right now
are so complicated that it takes all your mental energy just to
try and “hold” them, so you have nothing left to actually do
something interesting. Or at least they’re too complicated for me.
I’m not that smart.
Personally, I’m tired of the trivial app stuff, and the App Store
isn’t conducive to anything more interesting. I think the next big
thing in software will happen outside of it.
