What will become of us?

I am ever so cynical about the nth “let’s work on a new groundbreaking social network app”email hitting my inbox, that I keep thinking about learning new skills, anything applicable in the real world, maybe I should work my way up a banking system, bankers make a lot of money, don’t they? Or go back to university for 8 years to become a doctor, change real lives, not secluding people via social apps.

  1. I am bored by what is considered innovative in the USA. I attend local tech meet-up events where one start up after another does presentations about how there apps helps people connect more etc. Boring. We don’t need another pinterest or Instagram. We need smaller and less painful medical devices that can help real people live better lives. We don’t need smart watches so that some dumb ass hipster can measure his/her steps. We need medical devices that can measure blood glucose more accurately than 20%. We need insulin pumps that can send data to a patients phone and correlate with food intake and physical activity.

  2. Reading some interviews on Offscreen Magazine (did you know it?) I am seeing that this kind of awareness is proper of individuals in their 30+, with circa 10 years of experience in the business.
    Real world problems are not even considered by youngsters without a family to take care of, of a perfect wellness state.

    It’s only when you grow up, face your impotence in front a disease and burocrary or “old world” behaviours that people begin to approach things differently. It’s a sad true, but the speculative VC and market near the San Francisco bay area works hiding it.
