Do you think Steve Jobs would've created the Mac growing up on the East Coast? No, the West Coast was where all the wackies and hippies lived.
Once we conform to critical theories about how things work, we lose a bit of independence. The story we tell ourselves becomes shallow, shadowing the mimetic desire of those around us.
Today's audience is global. The bell curve is flattening—there is little need to be normal when our lookalikes exist online. The armory of truth is already out there on fire, waiting for us to wire it together for the micro.
