Techno-Utopians Please Take Note

Please discard from your pitch:

  • Tom Friedman world-is-flatism
  • Kurzweilian Singularities
  • Prenskyan Digital Nativism
  • Dot-commer “Marginal cost of zero” talk

And please replace it all with this simple observation by Tom Hoffman:

I don’t understand why “computers can make it easier to do the difficult, sophisticated things we’ve been trying to do for years” is a less appealing, or at least less used, argument than “New! Disruptive! Etc.”

(Feel free to suggest additions to the discard list).
