It's the words we don't think about carefully that become the most hazardous.
We see “innovation” almost as a force of nature, a relentless outcome by the work of tech entrepreneurs. In the process, several economists warn, we’re losing sight of social realities about innovation.

It's not just NSA surveillance: The real boom is citizens with cheap cameras monitoring their kids, their nannies with their kids, their contractors at work, their turtles. Coming next: facial recognition. Wednesday's NYT Front Page

There are now a Big Four in global cloud computing - Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and IBM, who will each spend >$1 billion a year, and are acquiring intellectual capital you only get by running these systems at a large scale. Within a few years that know-how may be a greater barrier to entry than the money required to compete.

There is a great line I must track down that runs something like: "People want the world so perfect that they won't have to be good." Tweak that a bit, and you've got a good chunk of how technology is presented to us by its creators.

We love mobility, and apps drive us nuts. Are we right, or like petulant kids? A new report shows both can be true.
People from Earth’s most remote corners have something in common: They all download apps, interacting with the mobile Internet billions of times a day, and they all feel frustration at slow loads and app crashes. A new report shows how much work it is, getting us to this level of frustration.

Pivotal has $105 million from GE, & plans to build Big Data software for a connected world at Google speed. It also goes up against the lousy history in the Valley of companies that begin big.
