One of the more interesting TED talks I’ve watched. I’m struck most by Pontin’s four criteria for understanding when technology is the appropriate solution to a big problem.

In a way, they were right (ratings as a whole are down, people aren’t watching TV as much), but in another way, this was so shortsighted. (via shortformblog)
MY TAKE: What if executives hadn’t been so shortsighted? Would we have Netflix today? Doubtful, I think.
