Binary Oppositions

Does Not Compute

These pairs have been on my mind recently. Some are ridiculous, others productive only in tension.

  • Technology is killing us | Technology can save us
  • I am interested in people (not tech) | I’m interested in technology (not people)
  • Invention | Innovation
  • Leadership | Management
  • Computers deserve my scorn | Computers are magic
  • Making things | Maintaining things
  • Planning | Improvising
  • Task orientation (efficiency) | People orientation (humanity)
  • Science | Philosophy
  • Productivity | Being
  • Hubris | Humility Realism
