Don’t be on the wrong side of technology. (Naval Ravikant)

The following quote is from Naval Ravikant on the First Text Podcast:

The history of the human race is a history of technology… fire is the beginning of technology that turned us from being prey into being predators, and all of human progress comes from technology. It’s just that when something starts working really well, we stop calling it “technology” and we give it a different name…

…These days, if you’re in Silicon Valley, and eventually in the rest of the world, either you’re telling a computer what to do, or a computer is telling you what to do. Either you’re programming the Uber app, or the Uber app is programming you, and telling you where to drive the car. You don’t want to be on the wrong side of that transaction.
