...<b>The business coalition sees the service coalition as composed of useless moochers, and the service coalition sees the business coalition as greedy bastards</b>. If it were merely a clash of objective interests, it really wouldn’t be much of a clash. A healthy business environment needs schools and hospitals and public infrastructure to backstop it, and nobody is made happy by a business cycle downturn.

"I think we’re failing as a culture, when the only effective way to connect with people is to hand our social (online- and offline) network graphs to a corporation to monetize at will. Our social connections are far too important to trust them to Google, Facebook, Twitter, or the next big shiny thing."
