Zu Oculus (2): „good ideas should change paradigms“

Peter Berkmann bringt hier einen wichtigen Gedanken in der Diskussion über den Oculus-Kauf durch Facebook auf den Punkt:

„Instead of Oculus being their own specialized operation that could create it’s own goals and emergent desires, we now have a massive cultural force whose energy is being funneled (along with many others) to a singular entity who’s goals and desires have been long-since determined. (…)

Cultural evolution is the most important thing in the age of information, good ideas can and should change paradigms. It is deeply upsetting to watch independently operating forces that create life-changing innovations get sucked into the old system just as they reach potential to break a standard model.“
