Innovators need to focus
(World saving vs Silly apps)
by Charles Jo (@charlesjo) 10/26/14
There’s ongoing plea for innovators to stop creating silly apps & instead focus on world problems.
But these “silly” apps of today can be possible powerful tools of tomorrow.
We forget that Twitter was labeled silly when it debuted.
But Twitter & other social networks have been used by the oppressed to challenge dictatorships.
So we need to encourage all innovators to create more novel tools — not less.
For those whose sense the calling for world saving solutions, please continue to invest time & energy on those projects
rather than precious time berating other innovators.
After pouring your heart & soul into your ideal solution, you still have energy left, then join a non-profit.
Or join or create a cause in sites like Coactify.org.
