How to tell between a game and a future technological revolution, awesome design systems, the disappearance of the term “digital”, Y Combinator launches online teaching, and why it’s better to try to be productive than original. Here are the best links of the week!
The best read of the week is Ben Evan’s interesting suggestion on how to perceive new technology in an unbiased and analytical manner. Because it’s often difficult to decide whether the lastest innovation is a fun fad, or the start of a revolutionary new product. Evans uses the Wright brothers’ 1903 aircraft, the first car phone, and the jet pack as illustrative, thought-provoking examples.
