Technology and Content

A tech­nol­o­gy gen­er­al­iza­tion, stem­ming from a Bri­jit arti­cle sum­ma­ry I just read.

To be use­ful and suc­cess­ful, tech­nol­o­gy has to have access to con­tent. Tech­nol­o­gy with­out con­tent is use­less: what’s an iPod with­out MP3s? A DVD play­er with no discs? A Wii with no games? This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant to new and emerg­ing tech­nol­o­gy: with­out con­tent to feed it and dri­ve both invest­ment and inno­v­a­tive uses, the tech­nol­o­gy will die.
