Tech Revolution Continues Despite Poor Economy

    Yes, at this point it’s like saying “Life Continues Despite Poor Economy.”

  • I’m sharply reminded of Glenn Reynolds’ argument in An Army of Davids that the tech revolution is empowering small endeavors, such as Via Meadia or for that matter my son’s internet business and the many one person shops he does business with all over the world. Even as the Blue dinosaurs crash to the ground the little tree shrews are scurrying around in the weeds creating the future. Big=powerful =corrupt, sooner or later as Lord Acton warned us. Maybe Obama was more prescient than he knew when he claimed to have saved Wall Street from the pitch forks.

    The Information/Technology/… Revolution is “is moving steadily ahead and even picking up steam”? What an apposite figure of speech! 🙂

    @WRM This is the natural progression of things. If you take a look at the Russell 2000 index of companies, they were founded in times of recession. RCA did great in during the Great Depression. Whoever came up with the phrase, “Necessity is the mother of invention,” was a genius.
