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

Many like Roger + Chamath who were prescient or lucky to make fortunes off them were not prescient to see the social ills + have joined reactive chorus condemning them... BUT..

3/ I can't help but SEE an alternate view (even if i don't fully subscribe to it)
Roger McNamee wrote an op-ed in FT today
So, knowing he loves music, I edited it
Swapping "MUSIC" for "TECH"
And on re-read he sort of kind of sounds like Tipper Gore 30 years...

4/ Here is my quick + hastily edited version (someone can do a much better more thoughtful job) of the FT piece against FB + GOOG...
