Until then, the startups that I’d bet on to succeed (or I’d choose to work at if I were just starting my career) are not the ones where people are lying in hammocks drinking the craft beer du jour. They’re the ones where people are going to work because they get to collaborate with great colleagues on important products. Perks are nice, but meaningful work is better.

Yes, it’s true, a group of developers have actually built an autonomous decentralized computer that cannot be turned off. But, no, it’s not going to become sentient and spiteful, and no, it’s not going to launch all our nuclear weapons and destroy humanity.

But, seriously, you can’t turn it off.
