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.”


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.
