Discussion on a16z's Techno-Optimist Manifesto
Marc Andreessen recently published The Techno-Optimist Manifesto. It lays out some important points but leaves a lot of room for constructive debate and discussion.
"We believe Andy Warhol was right when he said, “What’s great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good.” Same for the browser, the smartphone, the chatbot."
