1/ The tradeoffs + unintended consequences of HOW technology gets used (or abused) is VERY real. And VERY hard to anticipate until it iswidely adopted and used as a tool by people with different values + motives.

2/ Was just reading op-ed by smart famed investor + musician Roger McNamee on ills of FB + GOOG
