Snippet: I Miss Blind, Dumb Enthusiasm for New Tech ☇

Martin Bryant for The Next Web:

And it’s not just the press. The wider tech community seems less enthusiastic about startups. Whereas the annual festival of technology and BBQ food that is SXSW in Austin used to be a place where apps like Twitter and Foursquare first broke through, you’re now more likely to hear conversations about how AI threatens society.

This whole piece hit home for me—I think we’ve been burned too many times by flashy, yet faulty startups or being letdown by the large players in the industry. It’s a shame, as getting excited about a new service or app could be a lot of fun.
