Check, Not Checkmate
from the innovation-ain't-over-yet dept
I’ve been hearing more and more people saying things about how the technology industry is now growing boring – and there’s nothing new left to work on or discover. I think (of course) that this is completely ridiculous. In the last couple weeks alone I’ve seen some incredibly cool new products that will be on the market soon. Here’s a column basically saying that there’s still plenty of innovation left to come. I’m actually going to speak to this point a bit next week during my talk at the O’Reilly Emerging Technologies Conference (for anyone who’s planning on attending). I’m amused by the pessimists who say there’s nothing new coming, because they strike me as the same sort of extremists who thought that the market was only going to go up a few years ago.
