2013 was a lost year for tech

2013 was a lost year for tech | Quartz

Christopher Mims:

All in, 2013 was an embarrassment for the entire tech industry and the engine that powers it—Silicon Valley. Innovation was replaced by financial engineering, mergers and acquisitions, and evasion of regulations. Not a single breakthrough product was unveiled—and for reasons outlined below, Google Glass doesn’t count.

Om Malik:

But to label 2013 a lost year for technology is hyperbolic, to put it generously. What’s more distressing to me is that other smart folks are simply echoing the headline. I look at the world around me, and I find a technology landscape that is blooming. How can you not be excited about the idea of sensors, apps and data turning our phones into a doctor’s virtual proxy. (I live with a disease and my phone is as much a part of it, as my meds.) Helium-filled disk drives that can store more and more data? Breakthrough or boring. Depends on how you look at the world — as someone who loves technology or someone who loves the shiny interpretation of technology.

Can Arrington recreate TechCrunch? Because that’s exactly what he’s planning on doing… [Updated] | The Next Web

I don’t think we’d be exaggerating the truth by saying Arrington very much intends on continuing exactly what he’s been doing at TechCrunch over at Uncrunched. Is it possible, or rather how fascinating would it be, if Arrington did manage to pull off the almost impossible and launch a competing blog to the one he started and steal the team that he helped build the blog with from the company that acquired it?
