Sorry Nassim Taleb, Technology Does Matter
Greg Satell, Forbes
Nassim Taleb, in his new book Antifragile, is so derisive of technology that he refers to tech enthusiasm as a condition – “Neomania” – and argues that much of the progress we get excited about isn’t really progress at all.
He gleefully points out that we continue to wear shoes, eat with silverware, drink wine, beer and coffee and do many other things that have been around for thousands of years and notes that while these old technologies has been tested by time, new technology is prone to failure.
TAGGED: technology, Nassim Taleb
