Well, I think one thing they are trying to do is data mining, separating the very small wheat from the very large chaff. Far be it for me to get in their way. It's just so far away from what I do it's hard to understand why anyone would care. But it's easy to understand: anything that is near the bottom of an s-curve in growth has a lot of exciting opportunities. Dumbass marketers and other leaches try to sell to us inappropriately. Well-proven technologies get decremented too fast. That's the thing we must fight.

Most next big things will wind up in the dustbin of technological history on their own. It's an unfortunate corollary that the best technology won't win. I revel in the Schadenfreude
