So @photomatt  is “becoming more wary of any hardware that requires an app, just because of the natural decay of non-open source software. @VanMoof  bikes are beautiful, but will they still connect well when Bluetooth has been removed for security reasons?”

We need to figure out a level of abstraction here which makes the need for apps less necessary. And more importantly as @davemark  said not everything needs to be connected.

At the start of 2021, tech finds itself in the crosshair of social and political upheaveal. This has been long time coming. h/t @jilliancyork  @TimothyDSnyder  @peterwsinger

The obsessive coverage of Ello is less about Ello. Instead it really is about our growing dissatisfaction with the state of social networks.

For 2017, I hope we all can say goodbye to hokey startup wisdom, to false prophets of entrepreneurship & self-promotional investors bullshit
