Stop moving, tech

What people want: technology that doesn’t change constantly.

Incentive: super tired of re-learning how to do something that we already know how to do, for decades on.

What companies want: technology that changes constantly.

Incentive: selling more hardware, keeping and controlling users inside a system, economies of scale, justifying positions and salaries.

Companies’ incentives are strong. Yet they don’t make sense in a way: selling more hardware for what, I see homeless people with three devices. Justifying workforce, well maybe you should save money by laying off expensive executives, I don’t know.

People’s incentive is legit, obvious and hitting everyone of us at some point. But, money.

My mom just emailed me to tell me that she’s tired of update problems on her computer. So no video call today. Technology is exhausting and fucking up our lives now.
