Something that matters

A video interview with Tim O’Reilly on his statement “Work on something that matters” was recently posted to O’Reilly radar.  If you liked that, you might also check out his blog post which roughly outlines the idea.


I am a big fan of O’Reilly on this matter. So much of what we do seems focused on fueling a system which exists only for itself. While we may have needed huge centers of capital in order to create and get through the industrial age and the beginnings of the post-industrial/information era, the time may be right to start thinking about other models of commerce and society in which larger swaths of people are empowered to create.
