"Platforms that create new possibilities.. are the single most important economic force when it comes to countering the oncoming wave of computers doing people’s jobs, and lazily written regulation that targets aggregators but constricts platforms will inevitably do more harm than good."
Tech’s Two Philosophies – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Google and Facebook represent one philosophy, and Microsoft and Apple represent another; tech needs both, but ultimately platforms are more important than aggregators.

"Imagine if a bunch of telecoms people had sat down in 1998 and defined what a ‘partial multimedia terminal’ and ‘advanced multimedia terminal’ would look like and what specs it would have and then told the manufacturers, or rather, the ‘suppliers’, to go away and come back in a decade with products that matched the spec. That isn’t how it happened - rather, the process of creating the technology shaped the final result. We tried many paths, and worked out the ones that worked (and in the end the telcos were not in control anymore and the ‘suppliers’ had all changed). We didn’t start with a predetermined conclusion and then go away and build it. In the same way, I sometimes think that talking about L4 or L5 presumes the shape of the outcome - instead, the outcome will be shaped by the process. "
Steps to autonomy — Benedict Evans
We talk a lot about levels of autonomy, and ask when the first ‘fully autonomous’ cars will appear. That might be the wrong way to look at it - there will be lots of different kinds of ‘autonomy’, and the ‘where’ and ‘what’ may matter as much as the ‘when’.
