Being upset at tech for taking jobs away is futile. But being oblivious about the impending job destructions is naively optimistic too. @mr_james_c I think tech just ... is. Just like gravity. Question is now how we reshape society around it. @mr_james_c yes I know but the statistics are staggering and they align with my everyday experience (even inside startups!!)

@Sam_L_Shead @azeem ballsy statement. @agravatb for sure. The more illegal the better. @sfermigier I certainly never said that; only that strong narratives are important, powerful and often underestimated.I like founders with a real edge, where I'm thinking: "I wouldn't like to compete against that team" - https://t.co/CxLksR0rYE @sfermigier this is just a semantics disagreement and it shows that lack of context hurts discussions.
